Friday Mystery Book Discussion & Lunch
Our next discussion & lunch will Friday, December 13, at the library from 11:45 am to 12:50 pm. We'll provide the books prior to the meeting, then you just need to bring your own lunch and drink... and, of course, your thoughts and opinions on the reading selection!
Book Discussion: The Striker : an Isaac Bell adventure by Clive Cussler.
| Featuring the intrepid detective, Isaac Bell....
It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think that something else is going on, that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.
Little does he know just how big they are. Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two most ruthless opponents, men of staggering ambition and cold bloodedness... who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way.
In Mystery Book Club, we have read many great stories over the years. Even better, we've also had the chance to visit with the authors of those books! A few years ago, we had the pleasure of sitting down with George Shuman (author of "18 Seconds"). Then, in 2013, we had the fun of Skyping with Brad Parks (author of the Carter Ross series, beginning with "Faces of the Gone") and lunching with Lois Lamanna (author of Matrimony & Murder). To check out these authors and books, or any others read by our book club, visit our Group Reading List page and then look them up in our system's online library catalog.

The group usually meets in the downstairs community room of the Ligonier Valley Library from 11:40 am to 12:50 pm. Don't worry if you can't get here right at 11:40 am, just get here as soon as you can.
