Historical Mysteries: Suspense, Mystery and Damsels in Distress

ID : 1146   
« back to classes page
Great reads generate great movies, and, in combination, they generate great discussions. Join us as we explore a world where everything and everybody is focused on “whodunit.” This study group will read the great historical mystery novels of seven authors—from Agatha Christie (Murder on the Orient Express), to Helen Macinnes (Above Suspicion) to Scott Turow (Presumed Innocent)—and also view the movies that were based on these wonderful novels. Each of these works are set in a time period considered historical from the author's perspective, and the central plot involves the solving of a mystery or crime. Each study group participant acts as the discussion lead for the book of their choice and prepares a brief biography of the novel's author. You'll be on the edge of your seat as we solve seven complex mysteries through the fall semester. No class on 11/28/19.
