Horror Writers Association

A recent poll of thousands of library workers identified Horror as one of the Top 5 genres they were "most scared of," yet the genre is basking in a popularity that hasn't been seen in decades. We cannot ignore it any longer. It's time to stop worrying that horror readers are monsters, and start remembering they only like to read about them.

With the Spooky Season just on the horizon, Horror Writers Association's Libraries Co-Chairs Becky Spratford and Konrad Stump want to help you get ready. Come learn from them about why readers love horror, how you can promote it all year long, and how the HWA can be there to help you every step of the way.

Moderator Stephanie Sendaula is Programming and Outreach Specialist at LibraryLinkNJ.
