Stephen King Book Club @ Drink Me! Tea Room – Joyland
September 7, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Stephen King Book Club @ Drink Me! Tea Room
Welcome to our new Stephen King Book Club hosted by our favorite fiction professor and Stephen King Podcaster Kim C., host of The Year of Underrated Stephen King.
To continue our journey with Stephen King’s psychic kids, our next book will be Joyland. Join us on September 7th @ 4pm.
This underrated diamond of a King story allows the reader to meet college student Devon Jones at the start of summer in 1973. With a newly broken heart, he heads to the North Carolina coast with a seasonal job at the Joyland theme park where he makes new friends and a few new enemies as he learns the ropes of carny life and tries to put himself back together. This is a short and powerful book with a ton of heart, a little mystery, a smidgen of ghost story and even more nostalgia. This is one of my all-time favorites from King.
A $25 Event fee will secure your reservation as well as allow Drink Me! Tea Room to provide treats and a selection of teas to accompany our novel discussion!
We are excited to talk about this fun, end of summer book!
