Crime Club

Questions? Please contact us! You can also reach us at 413-534-7307 during regular store hours.






We meet at the Odyssey on the second Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m.. Note: Even though the store is closed, we will still meet at 7:00 p.m.. However, you must use the upstairs (College Street) entrance, as the ground floor entrance (parking lot) will be locked. In addition, if you wish to buy the book for the subsequent month (at the regular club discount), please bring a check. It's the only kind of payment that can be accepted during off-hours at the store.

It's free and everyone is welcome. We talk about the characters, the plot, the setting, and the language. We reveal why we liked the book or why we didn't. Sometimes we agree and sometimes we don't. Mostly we have a good time talking crime. 

Each selection of the mystery book discussion group is discounted 20% at the Odyssey.

Current and future selections:

December 10: Magpie Murders, Anthony Horowitz (joint meeting with Open Fiction)

January 14: Stone Cold Dead, James Ziskin
