The Game's Afoot Mystery Group
Meets the third Monday of the month except December at 7:00 p.m.

For sixteen years this group has read all genres of mystery fiction; from cozies and amateur detectives to police procedurals, legal thrillers and classic noir. Discussion titles are chosen on a quarterly basis and suggestions from group members are welcomed. So far the group has never read the same author twice.

Copies of the book selections are available for check out at the Library approximately one month before the discussion.
