Hard Boiled Mysteries Group Meets

A special message from the Mystery Book Club, from Iris Gaughan and Sylvia Barclay.

Hi all,

We had a interesting discussion about Hard Boiled Mystery Stories this AM. Most enjoyed this genre with some reservations. The bonus was the treasure trove of mystery books donated by Jan DeVries for us to pick from for our summer reading adventures.

We hope that you will be able to make the next meeting which will be on June 24th at 10 AM at the Riverton Library. Please note this date change.

We will be exploring Female Sleuths. Linked is a list of authors to consider. We are looking at the NOW authors — Female Sleuths.

We would also like to go out to Orange Blossom afterwards for an early lunch before we disband for the summer.

All are welcome.
