Join us next on May 29th, 2014, 6:30 p.m. at the South Branch Library for our annual Series Share night. We're not all reading the same book for that meeting. Instead, participants are encouraged to read the first volume of ANY new mystery/suspense/thriller series that's premiered in the past 4 years. Everyone will get a chance to share their impressions and opinions of that new series with the group -- should be an opportunity to get lots of good suggestions for new authors to try!

We hope to see you then!
