Mysteries Around the World Book Group: JUNE

Join us to discuss The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell on June 1st at 7pm.

2017: 19 year old Tallulah is going out on a date, leaving her baby with her mother, Kim.

Kim watches her daughter leave and, as late evening turns into night, which turns into early morning, she waits for her return. And waits.

The next morning, Kim phones Tallulah’s friends who tell her that Tallulah was last seen heading to a party at a house in the nearby woods called Dark Place.

She never returns.

2019: Sophie is walking in the woods near the boarding school where her boyfriend has just started work as a head-teacher when she sees a note fixed to a tree.

‘DIG HERE’ . . .

A cold case, an abandoned mansion, family trauma and dark secrets lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell’s remarkable new novel.

Lisa Jewell “has a way of combining furiously twisty, utterly gripping plots with wonderfully rich characterization…A triumph.”

We look forward to welcoming you to the Mystery Group.

Midday Meditation

Need a break during your break?

Your lunch break is here again and you’re trying to shovel down some food while crossing as many things off your personal to-do list as you can. Suddenly your break is over and you don’t feel like you got a break at all. If you want (need?) to slow it down, come to our weekly midday meditation program. Each Tuesday, from 1:15 to 1:45pm, enjoy the quiet and calm, practice mindfulness, or take a nap! Sit on a cushy floor pillow in a room only illuminated by candlelight, breath in the therapeutic mist from an essential oil diffuser, and take a moment to refocus your mind. Or nap. Napping is definitely allowed. Either way, you’ll enjoy some quiet time just for you in the middle of your hectic work day.

The timing of this program is intended to give participants time to get to the library and back to work within their break. If you arrive between 1 and 1:15, and/or leave between 1:45 and 2, that is alright. This is meant to be low/no stress!
