Mystery book discussion reaches critical mass at WPL


Solve the mystery on Tuesday, June 30 at 6:30 p.m. The Mystery Book Discussion Group will be discussing “Critical Mass” by Sara Paretsky in the Wauseon Public Library’s main floor Reading Room. The book discussion is free and is open to everyone.

According to the book jacket, “In 1939, Dr. Lotty Herschel, V. I. Warshawki’s closest friend in Chicago, escaped the Holocaust in Vienna with her childhood playmate, Kitty Saginor Binder. Though the two drifted and animosities grew between them over the years, when Kitty’s daughter finds her life in danger, she turns to Lotty for help. In turn, Lotty summons V.I. to take the case.

“The threats on the daughter’s life at first seem a simple case of bad drug dealings, but V.I. soon discovers that they are just the tip of an iceberg of lies, secrets and silence whose origins trace back to the deadly race among America, Germany, Japan and England to develop the atomic bomb. And while the secrets may be old, the people who continue to guard them will do anything to make sure they stay buried…”

The library has ordered copies of the book, so each group member may have one. Please stop by the library, and pick up your copy today. For more information on the book discussion groups, please email amurphy@seolibraries.org or call the Wauseon Public Library at 419-335-6626.
