Mysteries at Lunch

Our Mysteries at Lunch book group meets the third Wednesday of each month at 12:15 p.m. in the library's meeting room. Copies of discussion books will be available at the front desk one month before the group meets. We often have audio and large print copies available as well. Since this group is our “at lunch” group, feel free to bring a bite to eat!

 
Moonstone

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins

Wednesday, September 20, 12:15 p.m.


Rachel Verrinder receives the stone as a gift and does not realize that it has been passed to her in a sinister form of revenge by John Herncastle who, it transpires, acquired the moonstone by means of murder and theft. The jewel also brings bad luck. The stone disappears on the very night it is given to Rachel, though, and the tale concerns the unveiling of the culprit after the intervention of Sergeant Cuff, a famous London detective.

Mystery of Edwin Drood

The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens

Wednesday, November 15, 12:15 p.m.


Dickens's last--and unfinished--novel introduces an unforgettable array of characters, from the sinister to the comic, and moves to a haunting climax in an atmospheric murder mystery that features the seemingly benevolent John Jasper, a secret opium addict, and his relationship with his newly engaged nephew, Edwin Drood.
