Our book choice for February will be some more short stories by Edgar Allan Poe ( January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849). Poe is best known for his short stories, particular his tales of mystery and the macabre (disturbing and horrifying because of depictions of death and injury). He is an American Author, and is one of the country's earliest short story writers. He is also generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He was the first well-known American writer to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in an financially difficult life and career.

Happy New Year, everyone! Our Book Club will start on January 14, 2019 from 6:30-7:45 pm in the Heritage Room. Our choice for the first book is a mystery book, The Blue Dragon by Ronald Tierney. A murder in a small apartment building in San Francisco's Chinatown prompts the absentee owner to hire Chinese American Peter Strand to calm the anxious tenants. But Strand isn't exactly what he appears to be. neither is the crime. Solving this crime will expose the secrets of the Blue Dragon and bring Strand face-to-face with a few ghosts of his own. I look forward to seeing you there!
