Things That Go Bump In The Book: The Ghost Stories of Henry James and Edith Wharton
Nobody scares up the ghosts like James and Wharton! While dozens of writers in the nineteenth century and early twentieth century made careers out of spooky goings-on, few took the craft to such heights–or perhaps depths—as these two artists, these two friends. Join us as we read the scary short stories from the long course of both their careers, stories that explore the supernatural, the unexplained, and the just plain bizarre. In an age that gave us Edwardian gilt, Freudian analysis, and a host of new religious off-shoots from Christianity, things are bound to be not what they seem. Or perhaps exactly what they seem. Did that light just flicker?

These are the two books for the course, both paperbacks.


The books will be available at Oblong Books in Millerton until March 1 when the library reopens and copies will then be available at the library.

Or you maybe request copies from another library. Please do not send them to Scoville for pick-up until the library reopens.
