Virtual Mystery Book Group: The Nine Tailors

The Virtual Mystery Book Group is a permanently virtual book group focusing on mysteries. It meets 9 times a year by Zoom on a Wednesday from 4:30-5:30. A new theme will be explored for 3 months in a row at 3 times during the year. 

Winter 2023 Series

Theme: Classic Mysteries

To start off 2023, we’ll delve into some classics of the genre. In January, we’ll read three short stories from the early days of mysteries, by the pioneering authors Arthur Conan Doyle, Maurice Leblanc, and G.K. Chesterton. In February, we’ll learn about bell-ringing in Kent England as well as solving two distinct crimes when we read The Nine Tailors by Dorothy Sayers. In March, we’ll explore the historical mystery of Richard III with hospitalized Alan Grant as we read Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time.

  • The Nine Tailors, Dorothy Sayers.

Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957) was ranked with Christie (and Margery Allingham and Ngaio Marsh) as top mystery authors of the Golden Age, although she also had a career as an essayist and published an English translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy. The Nine Tailors (1934) is the ninth of her novels featuring Lord Peter Wimsey, a British aristocrat who solves crimes as a hobby.

Description: The nine tellerstrokes from the belfry of an ancient country church toll out the death of an unknown man and call the famous Lord Peter Wimsey to investigate the good and evil that lurks in every person. Steeped in the atmosphere of a quiet parish in the strange, flat fen-country of East Anglia, this is a tale of suspense, character, and mood by an author critics and readers rate as one of the great masters of the mystery novel.

Pkease register to receive a link to the Zoom meeting.

Falmouth Senior Center Book Club - Black Cake

The monthly book club for the Falmouth Council on Aging Senior Center is now being facilitated by Falmouth Public Library librarians! 

Join us on Tuesday, February 14th at 1pm at the Senior Center (780 Main Street) as we discuss this month's selction Black Cake: A Novel by Charmaine Wilkerson!  Copies of the book can be picked up at the book club meetings at the Senior Center or at the Falmouth Public Library's reference desk.

"We can't choose what we inherit. But can we choose who we become?  In present-day California, Eleanor Bennett's death leaves behind a puzzling inheritance for her two children, Byron and Benny: a black cake, made from a family recipe with a long history, and a voice recording. In her message, Eleanor shares a tumultuous story about a headstrong young swimmer who escapes her island home under suspicion of murder. The heartbreaking tale Eleanor unfolds, the secrets she still holds back, and the mystery of a long-lost child challenge everything the siblings thought they knew about their lineage and themselves."

Kanopy Movie Club: The Farewell

The Falmouth Public Library has a new movie club!  It's like a book club but for movies!  Watch the selected movie from the comfort of your own home prior to the movie discussion meeting using Kanopy which is free with your Falmouth Public Library card.  Then join us in-person at the library for an in-depth discussion of the movie.

This month we will be discussing the movie The Farewell (2019) directed by Lulu Wang on Thursday, February 23rd at 3pm in the Bay meeting room.  Watch this movie prior to our meeting on Kanopy by clicking this link:  https://www.kanopy.com/en/falmouth/video/6440402.

Movie synopsis: “Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai (Shuzhen Zhao), has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there's a lot to celebrate.”

"An unflinching, powerful memoir about growing up Korean American, Michelle Zauner proves herself far more than a dazzling singer, songwriter, and guitarist.  With humor and heart, she tells of growing up one of the few Asian American kids at her school in Eugene, Oregon; of struggling with her mother's particular, high expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; and of treasured months spent in her grandmother's tiny apartment in Seoul."

Virtual Mystery Book Group: The Daughter of Time

The Virtual Mystery Book Group is a permanently virtual book group focusing on mysteries. It meets 9 times a year by Zoom on a Wednesday from 4:30-5:30. A new theme will be explored for 3 months in a row at 3 times during the year. 

Winter 2023 Series

Theme: Classic Mysteries

To start off 2023, we’ll delve into some classics of the genre. In January, we’ll read three short stories from the early days of mysteries, by the pioneering authors Arthur Conan Doyle, Maurice Leblanc, and G.K. Chesterton. In February, we’ll learn about bell-ringing in Kent England as well as solving two distinct crimes when we read The Nine Tailors by Dorothy Sayers. In March, we’ll explore the historical mystery of Richard III with hospitalized Alan Grant as we read Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time.

  • The Daughter of Time, by Josephine Tey.

Josephine Tey was the pseudonym of the Scottish author Elizabeth MacKintosh (1896-1952), who wrote plays as well as eight mystery novels. Six of them featured police dectective Alan Grant, but The Daughter of Time (1951) is unusual in that the detective is flat on his back in a hospital bed, the crime took place five hundred years earlier, and the sources are historical documents.

Description: In The Daughter of Time, Tey focuses on the legend of Richard III, the evil hunchback of British history accused of murdering his young nephews. While at a London hospital recuperating from a fall, Inspector Alan Grant becomes fascinated by a portrait of King Richard. A student of human faces, Grant cannot believe that the man in the picture would kill his own nephews. With an American researcher's help, Grant delves into his country's history to discover just what kind of man Richard Plantagenet was and who really killed the little princes.
