They’re creepy and they’re spooky…..

Need a little Hallowe’en holiday reading?   Here are some favorites, chosen by the staff of Southfield Public Library.

 Casebook of Victor Frankenstein
Victor Frankenstein, a serious-minded student from Switzerland, meets “Mad Shelley”, poet and atheist, at Oxford University.  They find themselves deep in discussions of ethics… and monsters!

Jackson, Shirley
Haunting of Hill House

James, Henry
The turn of the screw
