UHBF Virtual Author Event - Kayla Chenault ("These Bones")
“Lazarus, son, don’t ever go anywhere you can’t come back from.
Don’t get down a path that don’t lead back to alive.”
In a neighborhood known as the Bramble Patch, the Lyons family endures despite poverty, racism, and the ghoulish appetites of an underworld kingpin called the Barghest. As the years pass and the neighborhood falls into decay, along with the town that surrounds it, what’s left of the Bramble Patch will learn the saying is true: These bones are gonna rise again.
A perfect horror tale for the eve of Halloween!
