The Wonderlust Mystery Series is a book discussion program where readers search for clues, solve puzzles, and catch the bad guys within the wide world of mystery novels. Join us in Fall 2019 on a fog-bound journey to the British Isles, including England, Ireland, Scotland, and the Hebrides. British mystery novels frequently feature brooding detectives, as well as menacing landscapes and weather. We will delve into police procedurals as well as thrillers set in locations that range from the streets of London to the countryside of Yorkshire.
Meets on Thursdays, from noon to 1pm at Country Bookshelf. Participants must acquire their own books. They are available through Country Bookshelf.
Discussion Leader - Wendy Blake is a bookseller at the Country Bookshelf. She loves to read mysteries and recommend them to her customers. Wendy has A B.S. in Biology from University of Wisconsin, a M.S. in Genetics from the University of Colorado, and a law degree from the University of Houston.
Wonderlust is for people who want to continue learning throughout their lives. To learn more about Wonderlust or to become a member visit montanawonderlust.org
