Book Rec from Eric

Posted on in Book, Hoopla, OverDrive/Libby.

Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

Eric says:Welcome to Night Vale is the first novel based in the podcast universe of the same name about the strange and eerie, but friendly (mostly), desert town of Night Vale. Weird and quirky characters, dark humor, and occasional creeping horror combine to delight audiences with a taste for strange and offbeat hilarity.”

Available through OverDrive/Libby & Hoopla
