Novelist Jac Jemc & “Snap Judgement’s” Eliza Smith
September 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Jac Jemc will read from her new novel THE GRIP OF IT (FSG Originals) and discuss with Eliza Smith.
THE GRIP OF IT by Jac Jemc weaves the tale of a troubled married couple looking for a new start in an old home full of secrets.
“The Grip of It is a stunning, smart, genuinely creepy page-turner that I couldn’t put down. It’s got depth, thrills, twists, and great writing. I’d recommend this novel to anyone. One of the few haunted house stories that sticks the landing.”
— Jeff VanderMeer, author of the Southern Reach trilogy (Annihilation, Authority, and Acceptance), Borne and City of Saints & Madmen
