Join the discussion of Chris Bohjalian’s “The Red Lotus”

The Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group held its third monthly in-person meeting, following over a year on Zoom, on August 26th, 2021. Thirteen attendees discussed the stand-alone thriller The Red Lotus by author Chris Bohjalian. If you read The Red Lotus, and would like to contribute your comments about it, please do so as a reply comment to this blog post, below.

For reminders about upcoming Just Desserts meetings (once they resume) and/or other announcements of interest to mystery fans, don’t forget to sign up for the Just Desserts e-mail list. Or, now that in-person meetings are possible again, if you’re logged into your account on Facebook, you can visit the Events page for the Lincoln City Libraries, and mark whether or not you plan to attend upcoming sessions of Just Desserts – this is a great way for you to help us promote this engaging discussion group!

So…What did you think of The Red Lotus? Have you read others by Chris Bohjalian?

The following handout was prepared for the members of Just Desserts: The Works of Chris Bohjalian.

Now that we’ve returned to in-person public meetings again, we hope to see you at future gatherings of the Just Desserts group. Watch the libraries’ website and social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for the latest updates! In the meantime, we hope Just Desserters will join us on September 30th, 2021, for a discussion of the entire “Gaslight Mysteries” series by Victoria Thompson.

    This was not my favorite Chris Bohjalian book, but it seemed somewhat relevant during the current pandemic. I had a hard time getting attached to the main characters. Generally I enjoy Bohjalian, especially The Light in the Ruins, but for some reason found myself struggling to finish it.
