GHOST STORIES BOOK CLUB: Macbeth

February 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Let’s talk about chillingly good books. If we’re lucky, we might even be joined by a spectral visitor or two.

We meet at 7 pm on the second Tuesday of each month. For this year’s full lineup, visit https://vintagecottageantiques.com/ghost-stories-book-club.

This Month’s Book: Macbeth by A. J. Hartley and David Hewson

This is not your parents’ Macbeth or the one you read in high-school English class. A dark and bloody tale of a Scottish lord and his beloved wife, Macbeth: A Novel hurtles toward readers in gripping contemporary prose, thanks to novelists David Hewson and A. J. Hartley. Set in eleventh-century Scotland, Macbeth: A Novel is rich with ancient clans battling fiercely against one another and against the foreign marauders raiding their borders. Macbeth, Lord of Moray, and his wife, Skena, are loyal patriots, willing to kill or be killed to protect the Scottish kingdom. Yet the greatest danger to their beloved homeland is proving to be the king himself, Duncan, whose corrupt, bloody reign threatens to destroy the country. After Macbeth meets a trio of witches, the frustrated hero begins to think that perhaps Scotland needs a new king—him. But what begins as a plan fueled by the best of intentions soon spirals into murder, treachery, and personal collapse. In the language of today’s fast-paced thrillers, Hewson and Hartley create an electrifying tapestry out of Shakespeare’s tale, relaunching two of the most powerful characters ever created.

What to Expect

After a round of introductions, we’ll discuss the book. We also like to talk about movies and TV shows based on the books we read — so if you don’t have time to read the book, it’s okay to come with a Netflix review, too.

Reserve your spot early; space is limited. Please note that we do need at least 3 participants, so encourage your friends to come, too! We’ll confirm each meeting by noon that day. Check our Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates.

Price

Admission is $5, and the price includes refreshments. We usually order a cheese or pepperoni pizza and open a bottle of red wine. Let us know ahead of time if you want a vegetarian option.

Location

The Vintage Cottage is easy to find. We’re located at 612 West New York Avenue, six blocks west of main street, between Stone Street and Orange Avenue. There’s plenty of parking, both in front and in back.
