George's Mystery Book Club

George's Mystery Book Club is currently reading How It Went Down by Kekla Magoon and X: A Novel cowritten with Ilyasah Shabazz for the April 24, 2017 meeting. Kekla Magoon will be at the meeting to discuss her award-winning novels.

Bear Pond’s Mystery Club first met in February of 2008. The club generally selects two books to read & discuss, usually with a unifying theme.

Meetings are the last Monday of the month at 6:30 pm at Bear Pond Books.

Drop-ins are welcome! 

The book club's picks are available in the store at a 15% discount.
