IF Horror Book Club

Intersectional Feminist Horror Book is open to the public!

Feminism is for everyone! We welcome all genders and identities and are
committed to creating a space that stands in defiance of a white supremacist

We will be reading books from the horror genre and happily define horror as
widely as possible.

We meet on the 3rd Sunday afternoon of every month at Footnote. You can find
us on Facebook at IF HORROR BOOK CLUB.

Let’s get SCARY!
