Crime Club

Please Note: As the state of MA opens back up, and COVID-19 restrictions are removed, the Crime Club will ease back into in-person meetings outside, upstairs on the Patio at Odyssey Bookshop. Email if you are not already on the crime club email list but would like to receive information about upcoming meetings. 

The Crime Club reads one paperback mystery a month and its discussions are led by Joanne Picard. We typically meets the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. It's free and everyone is welcome to join. 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 Bookshop. Click on the link below to order online. Use code BOOKCLUB to apply the discount at checkout.
