Someone once said, "A novel is a chance to try on a different life for size." Readers of mysteries try out "good and evil" in a safe setting. In this book club not only will we try on different lives but also different locations. This is a chance to look at the world from the security of The Kings English Bookshop and discuss style, content and feelings of writers in exotic landscapes. We will read books from Japan, Scandinavia, England, France, and America.
Armchair Travel Mystery meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. It is open to the public.
Contact Wendy Foster-Leigh for details.
