Deadly Pleasures Mystery Book Group

Deadly Pleasures is a Mystery Book Group that meets on the third Tuesday of the month from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the Fireplace Room.  Books to be discussed are available for check-out aproximately one month prior to each meeting, at the Circulation Desk. New members are always welcome.  Join us this evening for a discussion of Glass Houses by Louise Penny.

"When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead. From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet Gamache does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized. But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied."

Author Event - Dina Vargo

Author Event and Book Signing!

Join Author and Historian, Dina Vargo as she brings historical figures to life recounting stories of the "wild" women that made Boston what it is today and shares the "hidden history" of  the city!  There will be time for Q&A after the program.  A limited number of Books will be available for sale.

"The sons of liberty are celebrated in the rebellious history of Boston--but what of their sisters? An audacious and determined procession of reformers, socialites, criminals and madams made the city what it is today. One hundred years before Rosa Parks, African American abolitionist Sarah Parker Remond refused to give up her seat while attending a play in Boston. Fiery activists Harriet Hemenway and Minna Hall led a boycott against bird plumage in ladies' dress and brought the fashion industry to its knees. Rachel Wall was the last woman to be hanged in Massachusetts after leading a daring life as a robber and pirate. Later, women like Boston Marathon runner Kathrine Switzer also blazed their own trails. Author Dina Vargo unearths the remarkable stories of the wild women of the Hub".  Wild Women of Boston: Mettle and Moxie in the Hub

"Boston is one of America's most historic cities, but it has quite a bit of unseen past. Riotous mobs celebrated their hatred of the pope in an annual celebration called Pope's Night during the colonial era. A centuries-long turf war played out on the streets of quiet Chinatown, ending in the massacre of five men in a back alley in 1991. William Monroe Trotter published the Boston Guardian, an independent African American newspaper, and was a beacon of civil rights activism at the turn of the century. Author and historian Dina Vargo shines a light into the cobwebbed corners of Boston's hidden history."  Hidden History of Boston

Deadly Pleasures Mystery Book Group

Deadly Pleasures is a Mystery Book Group that meets on the third Tuesday of the month from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the Fireplace Room.  Books to be discussed are available for check-out aproximately one month prior to each meeting, at the Circulation Desk. New members are always welcome.  Join us this evening for a discussion of Early Remains by Donna Leon.

"During an interrogation, Brunetti acts rashly, doing something he quickly comes to regret, and in the fallout, he realizes that he needs a break. Granted leave from the Questura, Brunetti's wife Paola ships him off to a villa owned by a wealthy relative on Sant'Erasmo, one of the largest islands in the laguna. There he intends to pass his days rowing, and his nights reading Pliny's Natural History. The recuperative stay goes according to plan until David Casati, the caretaker of the house, goes missing following a sudden storm."
