Comments Off on Botanic Gardens Book Trail
For the entire month of October, we have set up a book trail at the West Virginia Botanic Gardens. The book, “At the Old Haunted House” by Kelen Ketteman, will be displayed on pop-up boards along a trail so that you can move, enjoy the outdoors, and follow along a story. You can find the book trail near the labyrinth area at the gardens.

Comments Off on Book Club for Adults (Virtual)
The Book Club for Adults will be reading “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson for the October virtual club gathering on Friday, October at 6:00pm!
“It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, the lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.”
