Murder by the Book – that’s the name of the Library’s newest book discussion group, set to launch next month. Responding to popular demand, it will be dedicated exclusively to the enjoyment and exploration of the mystery genre.
Meeting on the first Thursday of each month, the group will alternate between traditional book discussions and other mystery-related programs, such as film screenings, author talks and more. Library Assistant Director Mary Rindfleisch will serve as facilitator.
The first session will be on Thursday, November 5th at 1:00 PM in the Library’s Dayton Program Room, when we will discuss “Shroud for a Nightingale” by P.D. James. This title was selected for our inaugural meeting because of the author’s unique position in the transition between Golden Age writers like Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh and the more contemporary sensibility of Sue Grafton, Elizabeth George and others.
As with all Library book groups, copies of the selection are available at the Circulation Desk, or check Books on the Common to purchase at a 15% book club discount.
If you are a mystery fan, join us in November to help choose forthcoming selections and programs!
