The Road Virus visits Salem
July 10 @ 10:00 am - July 16 @ 8:00 pm
Presented by Creative Salem and Salem Horror
OPEN DAILY FROM 10AM-8PM
(ONE WEEK ONLY)
The Road Virus is a mobile bookstore specializing in fringe literature.
Focusing primarily on horror, we also carry other marginalized genres such as sci-fi, fantasy, crime/thrillers, true crime, queer studies/lit, and more.
In specializing in fringe literature, The Road Virus will serve as a venue proving to be an outlier’s dream. No longer will someone with a different worldview need to walk into a bookstore and immediately beeline for the back shelf consisting of one or two rows of books. Instead, amongst our shelves, you will find yourself literally surrounded by words and stories trained on releasing the darker parts of life.
In addition to selling books, we will also promote literacy through community outreach, hosting special events, and providing a platform for those with a more clandestine worldview to come together and read.
While you are there make sure and visit Count Orlok’s Nightmare Gallery! Open daily 10-6 Daily … Sundays 12-5
