Mysteries at Lunch

Our Mysteries at Lunch book group meets the second 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!


The Postman Always Rings Twice by James Cain

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

The sultry young wife of a diner owner conspires with an aimless drifter to murder her husband. " Like the crime novels of his contemporaries Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, Cain's tales of obsession and murder are especially well-suited to that dark cinematic style of the 1940's known as film noir." (Magill Book Review) You may recognize this classic 1930s noir because of the movie of the same name.
