Coffee & Crime Mystery Book Club
The Coffee & CRIME Mystery Book Club meets twice a month now!
Same great books, spirited discussions, light refreshments, and fun activities.
Two convenient times:
Early bird: The third Tuesday of the month at 12:30 pm
Night owl: The third Thursday of the month at 7:15 pm
C&C is a free adult program, reservations required, meeting in the Local History Room of the Livingston Public Library, and is led by Librarian Ariel Zeitlin Cooke, herself a published author.
The group reads a different type of mystery each month, including historical, noir, thriller, true crime, caper, and “cozy,” and discuss themes such as the personality of the poisoner, the link between fraud and murder, and the image of the damaged detective.
Light refreshments are served, including, of course, coffee! (And yes, we do provide decaf.) Make your reservations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Selection may change up to 5 weeks ahead of the meeting. All meetings take place at the Library on Tuesdays at 12:30 pm and Thursdays at 7:15 pm.
