Calling all Mystery Lovers

Do you like to read mysteries? Would you like to talk about them with fellow enthusiasts? Then the Ridgefield Library is the place for you. In response to patron demand, we are planning to launch a mystery book discussion group in the fall, and we would love to have your input about format, book selection process, frequency of meetings and all the other factors that contribute to a successful book group. We invite you to take our short Mystery Lovers’ Survey, either online at our webpage at or by picking up a paper copy at the Library.

We will be trying out some of these ideas on June 25th at 10:00 AM, when the AM Book Group will be discussing Agatha Christie’s “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd” featuring iconic sleuth Hercule Poirot. Mystery lovers will also be in for a treat this summer, when author and scholar Joanne Dobson returns with more of her popular Brown Bag Lunch sessions. This year we will be looking at the contributions of Christie and Edgar Allan Poe to the creation of the mystery genre, as part of our celebration of the Summer Reading Program theme of “Be Creative @ your Library.” Join us!
