PAPERBACKS FROM HELL...Live! with Grady Hendrix

Graphic for PAPERBACKS FROM HELL...Live! on Saturday, September 24 at 9:30 pm at Footnote.

Grady Hendrix returns to Bookmarks with Paperbacks From Hell...Live!

In the early seventies, three books changed horror forever: Rosemary's BabyThe Exorcist, and The Other. The first horror novels to hit bestseller lists since 1940, they opened the floodgates for an avalanche of horror paperbacks to pour onto supermarket shelves throughout the seventies and eighties until Silence of the Lambs slit the genre's throat in the early nineties. New York Times bestselling author Grady Hendrix delivers a mind-melting oral history of this now forgotten world of Nazi leprechauns, skeleton doctors, killer crabs, killer jellyfish, killer babies, pretty much killer everything. Prepare yourself for a tour of this long-lost universe of terror. Prepare yourself for...the Paperbacks from Hell!!!!

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, September 6 on Eventbrite, or join us for our Festival Launch Party to receive early access.
