June is here, bringing whole list of spooky books, movies, and poetry to look forward to, along with the summer solstice! What are you looking forward to?
The Shape of Darkness on shelves
“A struggling silhouette artist in Victorian Bath seeks out a renowned child spirit medium in order to speak to the dead – and to try and identify their killers – in this beguiling new tale from the queen of Gothic fiction, Laura Purcell”
World Oceans Day. Celebrate virtually with the United Nations, a beach walk if you live near the ocean, or enjoy some ASMR ocean waves.
The Vault by Andrés Cerpa on shelves.
“Andrés Cerpa’s sophomore collection grapples with loss, grief, and the disassociation that can come with being a survivor. Everything normal becomes slightly strange, things feel far away and unsteady. In these poems, Cerpa exhibits restraint and care, each thought purposefully positioned on the page. His work is somber, reflective, and deeply moving.”
Juneteenth. Also known as Freedom Day and Liberation day, the holiday marks the 1865 announcement of General Order No. 3 in Galveston, TX.
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One in theaters.
“A brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. After more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that they’re dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom grows harder to discern with each conflicting clue.”
Full moon. June’s full moon is as the known as the Strawberry Moon.
