Mystery Book Club

I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to attend our Mystery Book Club.  We took a short break over the summer but now it's time to dig back into the mysteries we all enjoy.  I thought we might find a mystery that is written in our favorite state.  This gives us lots of choices and may bring a new and exciting author to the discussion.  Wednesday will continue to be our meeting day and the time will still be 2 pm.  So grab your books and come join us for our Mystery Book club discussion.  See you there.  Anyone is welcome to attend.
