Murder at the Library!
It would be a crime to miss this book sale
Thanks to a recent generous donation of 985 books that included hundreds of paperback murder mysteries, Lakewood Memorial Library is hosting a one-day only, murder mystery book sale on Tuesday, October 29 from 9:30 am until 5 pm.
Avril Moore, the donor, is a former seasonal resident of Chautauqua. Her book collection – which has a strong British accent! — includes dozens of authors beloved by generations of mystery fans, such as Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, M.C. Beaton, G.K. Chesterton, Ellis Peters, Martha Grimes, Josephine Tey, Michael Innes, Ngaio Marsh, Ruth Rendell, and many many more.
In addition to the more famous names, there are dozens more authors who were best-sellers in the early to mid-20 th century but whose books are now out-of-print or hard to find. What better way to celebrate Halloween and gear up for a winter of cozy evenings by the fireside than by stocking up on the very best of British and American murder mysteries? With books marked 25 cents each or five for one dollar, mystery fans will be solving murders with their favorite detectives well into the New Year.
The sale will be held one day only at Lakewood Memorial Library at 12 W. Summit St. in Lakewood. Coffee and tea will be available for book sale patrons.
*Due to high interest in our event we are amending the start time!*
This program will begin at 5:30pm in the Heritage Room. We’ll trick-or-treat together while making special stops throughout the library to read & listen to Halloween stories! Stories will be 5 minutes long with 5 stations total with groups of 10-15. The last round to hit every reading station will be 6:35pm.
Costumes are encouraged. Bags for goodies will be provided.
