Grady Hendrix: Welcome to the Final Girl Support Group

Grady Hendrix Banner 
WELCOME TO THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP 
Bestselling author Grady Hendrix (Paperbacks from HellMy Best Friend's Exorcism) welcomes you to a very special support group, so have a seat, coffee's in the back, and remember there's no cross-talk. Then prepare yourself for a guided tour of the history of murder books and movies, because ever since the invention of the printing press we've been using it to tell stories about killing each other, from bizarro 19th century Jack the Ripper fan fiction, through Psycho, the industry-changing success of Silence of the Lambs, all the way up to today when serial killers have become superheroes. Along the way we'll encounter the agony of primal hamster trauma, the pathos of Garfield the cat, and the magic of deformed monster sons as together we try to figure out what it means that so much of our entertainment is about selling murder for fun. 
 
Doors open at 6:30pm, presentation is at 7pm, followed by a screening of Friday the 13th Part 2, and then meet Grady and get some books signed!  18+ years old only please.
 
Tickets are $15 -or- $36 with a copy of The Final Girl Support Group!
