The August Book Club – Moonlight and Vines by Charles de Lint

August 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

$7

August Book Club Pick is MOONLIGHT & VINES by Charles de Lint!

“Newford is the quintessential North American city, tough and streetwise on the surface and rich with hidden magic for those who can see…”

When we discussed what fantastical realms we’d want to actually visit in our Fairy-Tale Salon, at least 3 of us said Charles de Lint’s Newford because it feels so livable, real, and profoundly magical. Reading his Newford books always makes us feel like we’re slipping on a cozy cardigan and drinking tea…but, like, the cardigan was stolen from the fairies and the tea has healing properties.

Moonlight & Vines is our favorite of de Lint’s short story collections, and we can’t wait to talk about it with you! His writing blends “Lovecraft’s imagery, Dunsany’s poetry, Carroll’s surrealism, and Alice Hoffman’s small-town strangeness,” creating “a haunting mixture of human warmth and cold inevitability, of lessons learned and prices to be paid.”

Our meeting will be on Monday August 22nd at 7PM ET!
