Hadley’s July Recommendation

 The Bad Seed by William March

“Yes, this is the novel that inspired many campy stories of evil children (and Nick Cave’s band name)- but it is also the classic novel that was nominated for the National Book Award in 1955 and was adapted into a long running Broadway play and an Oscar-nominated film. If you’re looking for some chills this summer I would recommend giving this classic horror/suspense novel a try. It’s a quick read, well written and the concept is quite horrifying without including any real graphic violence.”

We can interlibrary loan this book for you, just ask at the Reference desk.

Or request it yourself via the SWAN catalog.
