Thursday September 20th at 7pm – Author Talk With Paul Tremblay – The Cabin at the end of the World

The Cabin at the End of the World adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense. It’s a tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined.

Paul Tremblay’s novels have won multiple awards, and his essays and short fiction have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly online, and numerous year’s-best anthologies. He has a master’s degree in mathematics and lives outside of Boston with his family.

This program will take place at the Kingston Council on Aging located at 30 Evergreen Street in Kingston.  To register for this author talk, click on the button below.  For more information, contact the library at 781-585-0517 x6279
