In her first book, Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of Friday the 13th: The Series, author Alyse Wax (who has been a special guest on our Corpse Club podcast) took a deep dive into the making of the beloved supernatural series that aired from 1987–1990, and in her new book, The World of IT, she takes readers on a trip to Derry for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Andy Muschietti's IT movies (based on Stephen King's epic 1986 novel). And with IT Chapter Two now in theaters, this weekend is the perfect time for Wax's book signing at horror mecca itself: Dark Delicacies.

Taking place on Saturday, September 14th at 7:00pm at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, The World of IT book signing will feature author Alyse Wax, so if you're in the area and you're planning on giving someone the enduring gift of Pennywise this holiday season, this weekend is the perfect time to personalize your gift with a signature from The World of IT author herself.
