Gothic Book Club with John Palisano

$27-$32    |  Feb 26, 2019  |  9:30PM - 11:30PM

Ye olde Gothic worms its way into many genres and art forms, from horror to architecture to shoes. The books - old and new - have a lasting allure. Everlasting.

Frankenstein. But have you actually read it? It's. So. Good. And this totally rad deluxe edition includes Polidori's Vampyre. Read both, and we'll build a little shrine to celebrate Mary Shelley's gothic dominance of her contemporaries.


All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator - to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.

You can get your ticket (we'll ship the book to you!) at the link on this page - OR just come in to the store and look for our book club display, near the book tunnel. (Remember: you need time to read the book, so get your ticket sooner rather than later.)

If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to
