Book Club News
Book Club Meeting - May 28, 7:00 p.m.
Join us in the Frances Williamson Library, whether or not you’ve read May's book: Dire Threads (A Threadville Mystery), by Janet Bolin (Nominated for 2012 Agatha and Bony Blithe Awards).Threadville, Pennsylvania, has everything - a fabric store, yarn shop, notions store, quilting boutique, and Willow Vanderling's brand new shop, In Stitches, a hit with tourists eager to learn embroidering in the latest way, with software and machines. But when the village's bullying zoning commissioner picks a fight with Willow and turns up dead in Willow's yard, the close-knit community starts unraveling at the seams. Willow must stitch together clues and find the real murderer, or the next thing she embroiders may be an orange prison jumpsuit . . . Future Books:
