Program Notes: Reading Mysteries with Tabb Book Readers

Posted on February 27, 2019 at 2:28 PM by Elizabeth Land

Book enthusiasts gathered at the Tabb Library this weekend for the inaugural meeting of the Tabb Book Readers, a new library book club that encourages participants to stretch their horizons and share the books they discover on their journey.

TBR members agreed that a well-developed puzzle and believable characters were the keys to a great mystery. Couldn't make the meeting but want some recommendations from group? Check out what the TBR read in February below.
