Oc-THRILL-ber Library Displays

Stephen King: King of Horror

alt= " "

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
 -Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Stephen King is a prolific writer of many short stories and books such as The Shining, IT, Carrie, Misery, The Green Mile, and Shawshank Redemption. His stories have enthralled us with mystery, horror, imagination and magic! Many have been turned into films and television series, including the forthcoming The Stand.

Leeward Library’s OverDrive Collection [New Window] offers two new e-books, The Institute and The Stand, that you can read via your mobile device. 

Gothic Horror Fiction Reads

Gothic Horror Fiction: Classic and Contemporary Novels

Located near the Reference Desk on the Library’s upper level is a display of print and e-book titles, including QR (quick response) codes to access these titles through their Hawaiʻi Voyager records.

From Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto published in 1764 to Richard Matheson’s 1954 classic I am Legend to Emily Carroll’s 2014 graphic novel Through the Woods, readers have appreciated a little scare, shock, and suspense for centuries.

Come visit our Oc-THRILL-ber displays that will be up through the month of October.
