P.D. Brown Memorial Branch for our Mystery Genre Book Club
Please join us at the P.D. Brown Memorial Branch for our Mystery Genre Book Club! This is a new type of book club where we are focusing on a genre and we ask that you read any book that you want within that genre and come discuss what you read with other like-minded readers. Pick a mystery, any that strikes your fancy. Come discuss the book with us, give and receive recommendations, and maybe meet some new people. We meet every other month, on the third Wednesday of the month from 6:30 to 7:30pm.
