Horror writer Stephen Graham Jones talks about spooky books in this virtual presentation from Illinois Libraries Present!

Stephen Graham Jones joins us to talk scary stories, horror, and more with librarian Becky Spratford. Jones is the New York Times bestselling author of The Only Good Indians and Don't Fear the Reaper and a prolific author of over 25 books spanning multiple genres. He has been an NEA fellowship recipient and been the recipient of several awards, including the Ray Bradbury Award from the Los Angeles Times, the Bram Stoker Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, the Jesse Jones Award for Best Work of Fiction from the Texas Institute of Letters, the Independent Publishers Award for Multicultural Fiction, and the Alex Award from American Library Association. He is the Ivena Baldwin Professor of English at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Illinois librarian and Readers' Advisor Becky Spratford will join Stephen in conversation. She trains library staff all over the world on how to match books with readers through the local public library and runs the critically acclaimed blog RA for All. A devout horror fan, she writes a horror review column for Library Journal, is the author of The Reader's Advisory Guide to Horror, and is a proud member of the Horror Writers Association.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events.
