Teen Book Group at The Jonesborough Library
Monday, October 16, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Join us for at the Jonesborough Library for our October meeting of Teen Book Group. This month’s title is The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

• Delia's new house isn't just a house. Long ago, it was the Piven Institute for the Care and Correction of Troubled Females -- an insane asylum nicknamed "Hysteria Hall." However, many of the inmates were not insane, just defiant and strong willed. Kind of like Delia herself. But the house still wants to keep "troubled" girls locked away. So, in the most horrifying way, Delia becomes trapped. And that's when she learns that the house is also haunted. Ghost girls wander the hallways in their old-fashioned nightgowns. A handsome ghost boy named Theo roams the grounds. Delia learns that all the spirits are unsettled and full of dark secrets. The house, too, harbors shocking truths within its walls -- truths that only Delia can uncover, and that may set her free. And she'll need to act quickly -- before the house's power overtakes everything she loves. Katie Alender brings heart-pounding suspense, gorgeous writing, and a feminist twist to this tale of memories and madness.

6th through 12th graders are welcome to attend. This is a free program, and registration is preferred but not required. To register or to place a copy of this book on hold, please call the Jonesborough Library at 753-1800.
