Books and Reading: Mystery Fiction

The Mystery Fiction Collection at the Northfield Public Library

About The Mystery Book Group

The purpose of the Mystery Book Group  is to have a time and place for a group of people excited by mystery novels, to get together for lively discussion. We come to challenge our minds to see the world through the different lenses of the author and club members.  We join in the fun of following the twists and turns of a good read.

The Mystery Book Group meets the third Monday of each month from 6:30 - 8:00 pm  at All Saints Episcopalian Church located at 415 Washington Street, Northfield.

Book Group members choose one mystery title a month, with titles decided three months advance at every third meeting. 

The Northfield Public Library arranges for an adequate number of titles to be gathered and held at the library before each month for club members. 

Book Group  members are encouraged to serve as moderators at forthcoming meetings.

For further information about The Mystery Book Club please contact Jamie Stanley, Adult Services Librarian, at the Northfield Public Library.

Jamie.Stanley@ci.northfield.mn.us or 507-645-1802.

 NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AT BOOK CLUB MEETINGS.  NO ADVANCE SIGNUP IS REQUIRED!
