TUESDAY, September 25th at 7pm: THE HOUSE WITH THE CLOCK IN ITS WALLS Begins
When Lewis Barnavelt, an orphan. comes to stay with his uncle Jonathan, he expects to meet an ordinary person. But he is wrong. Uncle Jonathan and his next-door neighbor, Mrs. Zimmermann, are both magicians! Lewis is thrilled. At first, watching magic is enough. Then Lewis experiments with magic himself and unknowingly resurrects the former owner of the house: a woman named Serenna Izard. It seems that Serenna and her husband built a timepiece into the walls--a clock that could obliterate humankind. And only the Barnavelts can stop it!
Note: We've heard a rumor that the book is much scarier than the movie. But we are in safe hands with Faerie!
Faerie Maven-Pralou presents the first in John Bellairs’ Lewis Barnavelt series, originally published in the 1970s.
