Curl up with a Few Good Books This Winter
What Makes a Cozy Mystery Cozy?
Thursdays, January 14 - February 18
9:30 - 11:45 a.m.
United Presbyterian Church
Unlike the tales of Sam Spade, Sherlock Holmes, or Alex Cross, the cozy mystery is warmer and friendlier with a crime-solver who is generally an educated, working woman and an amateur sleuth. In this study group we will discuss various cozy mystery authors and what makes their particular style successful.
Participants are expected to read a book a week and prepare simple outlines of their own cozy mysteries. If so inclined, participants can present their own favorite cozy mystery author. Titles to read include Sticks and Scones by Diane Mott Davidson, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie, Killer in the Kitchen by Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain, Death in the Daytime by Eileen Davidson, The Cat Who Saw Stars by Lillian Jackson Braun, and On Borrowed Time by Jenn McKinlay. All books are available from local or online retailers and libraries.
$45 - facilitated by Terry Meismer, retired teacher and social worker, OLLI study group committee coordinator, and cinema committee member.
