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.
While the store is closed, the Crime Club will meet virtually. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not already on the crime club email list but would like to receive information about upcoming virtual meetings.
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. Click on the link below to order online. Use code BOOKCLUB to apply the discount at checkout.
