This is a novel by Fannie Flagg.  Lordor Nordstrom created, in his wisdom, not only a lively town and a prosperous legacy for himself but also a beautiful final resting place for his family, friends, and neighbors yet to come. "Resting place" turns out to be a bit of a misnomer, however. Odd things begin to happen, and it starts the whole town talking. With her wild imagination, great storytelling, and deep understanding of folly and the human heart, the
beloved Fannie Flagg tells an unforgettable story of life, afterlife, and the remarkable goings-on of ordinary
people. In The Whole Town's Talking, she reminds us that community is vital, life is a gift, and love never dies.

misc_none 12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM Lunchtime Book Discussion: Girl in Disguise Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

This is an exciting, well-crafted historical novel by Greer Macallister featuring Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton detective in 1856 Chicago. Kate is a widow and needs a job, convincing Allan Pinkerton that a female detective can go places and do things a male detective cannot. Once hired, Kate becomes skilled at lock picking and surveillance, but she is best in disguise—as a prostitute, rich matron, spinster, clerk, Southern belle, doting sister, and false friend—an expert liar, playing a role. She investigates burglaries, bank robberies, embezzlement, counterfeiting, blackmail, and murder. The Pinkerton Detective Agency is a man’s world, and Kate is forced to prove herself, especially when someone tries to discredit her. She eventually earns the respect of her fellow detectives, learning a secret to be used later. Kate carries a pistol, but her wit, careful observation, and boldness see her through tricky and unexpected situations with desperate, dangerous criminals.

Multiple copies are available at the main circulation desk. 

Bring a sandwich and a friend as you “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided.
