[7:00pm] Keeping It Classy! Book Club
Keeping It Classy! Manchester, Ct March 6th, 2018: The Manchester Public Library on 586 Main Street will have its January meeting of Keeping It Classy Book Club on Tuesday March 6, 2018 at 7 p.m. This month’s selection is A Kiss Before Dying by Ira Levin. A Kiss Before Dying not only debuted the talent of best-selling novelist Ira Levin to rave reviews and an Edgar Award, it also set a new standard in the art of psychological suspense. It tells the shocking tale of a young man who will stop at nothing—not even murder—to get where he wants to go. For he has dreams; plans. He also has charm, good looks, intelligence. And he has a problem. Her name is Dorothy; she loves him, and she’s pregnant. The solution may demand desperate measures. But, then, he looks like the kind of guy who could get away with murder. (From www.goodreads.com) No registration required for this free event. Copies of the book are available for check out at the main library.
