books on a shelf

Halloween is almost here, so you know what that means. A bunch of new Christmas books are out! At least they’re mostly about murder. Again with all the murder. I’m starting to wonder about you.

Speaking of you and murder, do you want to solve one? Check out our new virtual program #GetLit: Hunt a Killer. Each month we will gather together and open a new evidence box full of ciphers, clues and objectives that must be solved in order to catch the killer! #GetLit programs are meant for ages 18 – 40(ish).

Our next case takes place on October 13, at 7:00 PM, on Zoom. When a small-town class reunion turns deadly, a private investigator reaches out to you to help find the killer. What secrets are the seemingly innocent citizens of Chestnut Falls hiding?

There’s still time to register for this month. We hope to see your there!
