States of Mystery: South Carolina to West Virginia

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic States of Mystery will take study group members on a journey to distinct regions of the country: East, South, West, and the Southwest. Some of the authors may be familiar and some will be new to readers. We will get to know the unique characters who emerge as we follow a modern-day moonshiner in Tennessee, a novice sheriff in West Virginia, and a transplanted Brooklyn native in Texas, along with the usual assortment of evil-doers, murderers, nosy neighbors, and dedicated public servants trying to do their jobs. We will read and discuss six books, exploring small towns, major urban areas, experiencing cultural anomalies as well as descriptions of the environment. Our books will be: In the Heat of the Night by John Ball (Penguin Classics, 2017 edition); The Moonshine Shack Murder by Diane Kelly (Berkley Prime Crime, 2017); The Dime by Kathleen Kent (Mulholland Books, 2017); Artifacts of Death by Rich Curtin (CreateSpace Publishing, 2011); Open Season by Archer Mayor (AMPress, 2007); and Buried in the Backwater by Drew Strickland (Drew Strickland Books, 2021). Books are available in hardcover, paperback, and Kindle editions. SECOND SEVEN WEEKS
