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!

An obsessive historian's quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder.
