Dystopian Fiction Book Club Turns To Mysteries For The Summer At UMass Dartmouth

Dystopia UMassD - Join the Club ... the book clubDystopian Fiction Book Club turns to mysteries for the summer

The Dystopian Fiction Book Club will shake things up this summer with a temporary switch to mysteries!

To celebrate the 85th anniversary of Nancy Drew, we’ll be reading one of the classic novels featuring the famed female sleuth, and then selecting a book whose leading lady is a modern day Nancy Drew.

For our June meeting, read any one of the first 56 Nancy Drew stories (full title list with descriptions: https://www.nancydrewsleuth.com/mysterystories.html ) and bring it with you for a lively discussion of how the character was presented in her heyday.

For July, we’re seeking suggestions for a recent Nancy Drew-style mystery. Our minds are open, so please share your favorites and we’ll pick one for all of us to read and discuss.

Everyone is welcome to participate!

To be consulted about meeting dates and to suggest your July read, please contact me directly at: Hilary Kraus ( hkraus@umassd.edu / 508-999-8681 )
