Murder by the Book Mystery Virtual Book Club

Murder by the Book Mystery Virtual Book Club

Do you like to read and talk about mysteries? Then join us for monthly book discussions, fresh perspectives, new authors and a friendly atmosphere!  We are meeting virtually via Zoom for the present and will eventually transition to meeting in the library.

This month's discussion is on The Seven-Per-Cent Solution by Nicholas Meyer A best-seller when it came out in 1974, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution is a pastiche about Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud. Who can imagine a more exciting team?! Explore why this bestseller made history and, as a bonus, learn how to write a pastiche.

Thanks to the Friends of the Cheshire Library, multiple copies of the e-book will be available to download on Overdrive/Libby from September 4-September 6.

Please register online. Once you have registered, we will email you a reminder the day before the book is available for downloading. If you register after  September 6 you will be able to participate in the discussion but the book will no longer be available to download.

 You will need an up-to-date Cheshire Library card in order to download the book. If you are a Cheshire resident and need a library card, use this link to get a library card. Non-Cheshire residents will need to get the physical book or e-book from their own library.  Books can now also be requested from other libraries. 

Please be sure that you know how to access Overdrive or Libby from the Cheshire Library website before the book is released. The book can be downloaded to a smartphone, Kindle, iPad or computer. For assistance, contact the library at ref@cheshirelibrary.org or 203-272-2245.  A staff member will get back to you.

Murder by the Book is hosted by Andy Tranquilli, long-time Cheshire resident, a former bookseller and devoted mystery fan! For more information contact Andy at tranquilli@hotmail.com.
