RVA Horror Book Club

RVA Horror Book Club was started in April 2012 by members of RED VEIN ARMY.

Into horror? Ghosts? Monsters? Haunted Houses? Haunted Attractions? Join the RED VEIN ARMY for Richmond's only Horror Book Club! Not just a Stephen King fan club; our group explores the modern to the 18th Century Gothic classics. With monthly meet ups around the city, we've grown from a small group of friends to a thriving club looking to expand even more! We're interested connecting with those who love horror, post-apocalyptic, and thrillers. Come join our book club that doesn't see itself as just a mere excuse for a social gather, but as a group dedicated to discussing and debating the merits of our monthly read.

RVA Horror Book Club usually meets in person once a month in various places around Richmond. To find out details on our next meeting, visit our Facebook page. If you don't see an upcoming event date, we're in the process of posting it. We always try to give members at least 30 days to read the next book. If you have any questions, please contact our book club chair Kitty!
