"Women of Mystery" Book Discussion Planned for July 2006

Women of Mystery is a compelling and innovative book discussion program provided free to libraries by the California Center for the Book. The Buena Park Library District will be hosting two simultaneous sessions of this program in the month of July. The Library is located at 7150 La Palma Ave., between Knott and Western Avenues.

One session will be offered on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm on July 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th; the other on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 pm-4:00 pm on July 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th.

In Week One, participants view and discuss the film, Women of Mystery: Three Writers Who Forever Changed Detective Fiction, which profiles mystery writers Sue Grafton, Marcia Muller, and Sara Paretsky, and delves into the worlds of their detectives. In Weeks Two, Three, and Four, books by Muller (Shape of Dread), Paretsky (Tunnel Vision), and Grafton (F is for Fugitive) are discussed.

Copies of each of these books are available for check-out at the Library. It is recommended that the books be read prior to the start of the program. For more information, call the library at 714-826-4100 ext. 125 and ask for Phyllis.
