Book Discussion: How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny

Cover of 'How the Light Gets In' by Louise PennyJoin us on Monday, November 20 at 6:30 pm as we discuss How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny.

Christmas is approaching, and in Quebec it's a time of dazzling snowfalls, bright lights, and gathering with friends in front of blazing hearths. But shadows are falling on the usually festive season for Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté de Quebec. Most of his best agents have left or been transferred out of the Homicide Department. Gamache receives a call from a friend in the village of Three Pines about the disappearance of a woman who was once one of the most famous people in the world. His investigation leads him into a web of murder, lies, and unimaginable corruption at the heart of the city.

How the Light Gets In is available in regular print, large print, eBook, eAudio, and Audiobook on CD. Please call 281-471-4022 or come by the library if you would like assistance in getting a copy of the book. Free. For ages 18+. No registration required.
