SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS OF THE S.F.A.B.C. - Monsters of Horror Book Discussion Group




The Monsters of Horror Book Discussion Group meets on the first Thursday of each month at Barnes & Noble, 4416 Palisades Center Drive West Nyack, NY (845)  348 - 4701 in the store's cafe at 8:00 PM.  Each month a different book in which a supernatural monster (ghost, vampire, werewolf) is a major character is discussed by those in attendance.

This group was originally conceived and organized as a Vampire Book Discussion Group, meeting for six years in another Barnes & Noble where it was the store's longest running and best attended regular book group.

During this time, the scope of the group was changed to encompass the more generalized topic of all forms of monsters.

It later became necessary to move to the present store.

A chronological list of the meeting dates, books, and authors read and discussed by the group follows.  An alphabetical list of this information appears after the chronological list.
