Amy Slowik from Russell Library (123 Broad Street) is starting a lunchtime mystery book group, and the Wesleyan community is welcome. The first book is “The Moonstone” by Wilkie Collins.
“This spellbinding tale of romance, theft, and murder introduced a hugely popular genre –the detective mystery. When a young English woman inherits a large, ill-gotten diamond sacred to Hindu moon god, the diamond soon disappears. The accused seeks to clear his name amid a series of sinister and deadly events. Bring your lunch if you’d like, and join the group for a discussion of one of the founding mystery-detective novels. Free; drop-in, no registration.”
Date: Tuesday, November 29
