Join fellow mystery fans for the 100th meeting of Just Desserts

Hey, Mystery Fans!

In April 2006, the Lincoln City Libraries held its first Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group meeting, at the Bennett Martin Public Library downtown. For the next 11 years, the Just Desserts group has continued to meet, once a month (January through October), first at the Bennett Martin Public Library, and more recently at the South Branch Library, on the last Thursday of each month.

Over the course of 99 meetings, we've discussed novels or short story collections from 94 different mystery authors, and shared dozens of different types of desserts during our discussions.

To celebrate the 100th meeting of Just Desserts on March 31st, we're having a special meeting, moved to the Walt Branch Library for one-month-only. We invite any and all area mystery fans to join us.

Just Desserts #100
Walt Branch Library -- 6701 S. 14th St.
Thursday, March 31st, 6:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.

Instead of our normal format -- in which all group members read the same book to discuss as a group -- we will be inviting all attendees to speak for a few moments about their all-time favorite mystery novel or short story collection. We plan to record this month's meeting to release as one of our audio podcast episodes. And a list of all the titles discussed will be shared online after the meeting.

So...join us, even if you've never attended a Just Desserts meeting before. You're welcome to bring a Dessert to share with fellow readers. And be prepared to share a mystery novel that holds meaning to you...and why!
