Thursdays with Murder

A mystery book discussion group for people who wish to enjoy and learn about mysteries.

To do this attendees will not always read the same title for each meeting. Instead, we will read by author, by topic, or do comparisons.

Before each meeting, each attendee will receive information about the reading for the following discussion. Information will be emailed, mailed or can be picked up at the Adult Services desk, including the next reading topic, a choice of authors, and ideas for discussion.

It’s a different kind of book discussion group. We hope you’ll join us!
