The Game is Afoot! (Holmes Reading Group)

06 Jun

A Summer of Sherlock

With “A Study in Scarlet” Arthur Conan Doyle established the character of Sherlock Holmes, and through 56 short stories and 4 novels, created the first iconic detective in English literature. This summer Bookstacks, West of Ireland Library, and the Alexandrian Free Libraries are delving into Holmes greatest cases. We’d like to invite you to join us.

The group will meet to discuss Holmes’ work on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at 6:00 pm. The meeting locations will range from the Bookstacks’ Pub to various libraries in the Alexandrian Free Library system.

In addition to the discussions, the West of Ireland Library will read several of Doyle’s work. The readings will take place a week or so before the discussions.

Note: These works are part of the public domain and are easily accessible online, at your local library, and probably on your own bookshelves.

If you have questions, please contact Kghia Gherardi.
