Mystery Book Group
Regular Book Group
Currently we have two groups, Mystery and General Fiction, which meet once a month. Both groups meet in the Sumner Room starting at 1:00 p.m. on their scheduled day. All meetings are informal and there is no need to sign up in advance. Everyone is welcome. The materials selected are available at the library and in paperback edition.
January 21, 2015 Regular Book Group Selection – Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler
When beautiful, reckless Southern belle Zelda Sayre meets F. Scott Fitzgerald at a country club dance in 1918, she is seventeen years old and he is a young army lieutenant stationed in Alabama. Before long, the "ungettable" Zelda has fallen for him despite his unsuitability: Scott isn't wealthy or prominent or even a Southerner, and keeps insisting, absurdly, that his writing will bring him both fortune and fame. Her father is deeply unimpressed. But after Scott sells his first novel, This Side of Paradise, to Scribner's, Zelda optimistically boards a train north, to marry him in the vestry of St. Patrick's Cathedral and take the rest as it comes.
February 4, 2015 Mystery Book Group Selection – The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen
The #1 international bestseller from Jussi Adler-Olsen, author of The Absent One—perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Carl Mørck used to be one of Copenhagen's best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl—who didn't draw his weapon—blames himself. So a promotion is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl's got only a stack of Copenhagen's coldest cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh, because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn't dead … yet.
