Murder, Mystery & Mayhem Book Club (SIG)


The Murder, Mystery and Mayhem Book SIG meets once a month, typically on the 4th Monday at 1:30pm. Everyone is welcome. We typically meet for no more than 1.5 hours. Historically, the meetings were at someone’s house. In this past year, however, the gatherings have been Zoom-based.

Books are selected one year in advance…and are not your typically hot present-day offerings. At the meetings, we discuss the chosen book, of course, but often we talk about other books we are reading, movies we have seen, serials we’ve watched/are watching on TV, etc.

Please contact Bruce Cohen for additional information.
