New! The travel bug bit! The mystery readers’ class is again taking flight to far flung countries to read contemporary mystery and crime novels written by authors from the country or region. We become immersed in local history, culture and politics. We’re starting in Iceland with “The Day is Dark” by Yrsa Sagurdardottir. Then, we head to Latin America, Africa and Asia. A reading list and study guide will be provided. Libraries have limited quantities, so books may need to be purchased. We meet every other week to allow time for reading. Our last class is an open discussion to share favorite international detective novels.
Course Fee: $35
