Third Tuesday Book Discussion

September 16th at 1:30 p.m.
Death Comes to Pemberley
by P. D. James

This selection is a rare meeting of literary geniuses. Famed contemporary mystery author P.D. James has masterfully recreated the world and characters of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice to imagine a rich tale of murder and emotional mayhem.

Pick up a copy of the book at our Circ Desk, read it, and then join us for a lively discussion. And this fall remember to watch Death Comes to Pemberley on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery to see how their adaptation compares with the book!
