Weird Book Club: Duplex, Kathryn Davis

Read Weird’s back, and we’ve got our next Weird Book Club pick!

In case you missed our inaugural Weird Book Club earlier this year, here’s how it works: every other month, we’ll announce a new title for the Weird Book Club. We’ll read the book together, and at the end of the following month, we’ll check in with discussions, reviews, and the like.

Our September-October Weird Book Club pick is Duplex by Kathryn Davis!  Join us Sunday, October 16 @ 1 PM EDT to discuss Duplex!
