Mystsery Book Club

Come one, come all.  The Mystery Book Club is back!! We had a great first meeting since our hiatus.  We talked about one of our favorite authors who passed away this year.  There will be no more "The Cat Who..." books by Lillian Jackson Braun.  Her books will be missed.  They were a fun read.  However, we moved on and decided that this next month we would concentrate on "unusual occupations".  One of the group said there are books out there about a pet sitter.  One pet is even an iguana.  So see if you are able to produce a book with a more unusual occupation than that.

We will discuss the occupations, and eat a light snack.  Come join in the fun and lively discussion.  See you on October 19th at 2 pm.
