Traps & Trench Coats Mystery Book Club


Black lineart of the Old Firehouse Books Logo (a firehouse with tower, many windows, and an arched doorway), set inside a magnifying glass (white circle with a black handle pointing to the bottom right).
If you've ever pictured yourself in a trenchcoat and fedora, helping knock-out dames and questioning rough characters, then we've got the book club for you! We'll be revisiting some of the greatest classic mysteries and reading some new takes on the mystery genre as well. Join your fellow mystery lovers for great discussions and figuring out whodunits.
Meetings take place on the third Monday of every month at Old Firehouse Books at 6:00pm.
Join the meetings via Zoom.
