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 Dashiell Hammett to Daphne du Maurier to John le Carré — 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. Any edition of the books are acceptable. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as we solve seven complex mysteries across fourteen weeks.
