F*@#'d Up Book Club

Black lineart of the Old Firehouse Books Logo (a firehouse with tower, many windows, and an arched doorway); above the firehouse are several "explicative markers": three exclaimation points, "what the...!?", several asterisks, an at-sign-exclamation-point-hashtag combo.

The F*@#’d Up Book Club is dedicated to reading all things f*@#’d up. Whether it’s plot lines that mess with your head, characters that make you shudder, or just those little nasty details thrown in to make your stomach flip, we’ll be there! Not just thrillers and horror novels (though there will be plenty of those!) we will strive to redefine just how f*@#’d up a book can get. Recommended for readers with a strong stomach and a dark sense of humor, who are unafraid of the things that go bump.

Meetings take place on the fourth Monday of each month at Old Firehouse Books at 6:00pm.
