The Coffee & Crime Mystery Book Club meets on the third Thursday of every month, led by reference librarian Ariel Zeitlin Cooke.
The next meeting is Jan. 17 at 7:15 p.m. The group will discuss Michael Chabon's, "The Yiddish Policemen's Union," a police procedural set in alternate history where Alaska, not Israel, became the Jewish homeland after World War II.
Chabon, "one of our greatest contemporary writers," according to the library, has created a fantastical, elaborately imagined world "...so vividly imagined you practically need a parka and a prayer shawl to get from one page to the next" inventing "an elegant, satisfying solution for his murder puzzle," as Terence Rafferty wrote in The New York Times.
The group will also listen to a snippet of the audiobook, which is read aloud by master actor Peter Riegert.
