detective Spend a day at "camp" learning about mysteries!

Readers Advisory tips, new releases, author talk, freebies ... fun and practical for all!

  • Love mysteries and want to find out what's coming out / share with other mystery lovers?
  • Is Mystery Readers Advisory a mystery to you?
  • Join other mystery lovers AND mystery novices for a special mystery camp just for librarians!

Join your colleagues on July 13 at the Westport Library for Mystery Camp! You'll hear from a panel of publishers and reviewers who will share what new mysteries are being published, what their favorites are and some tips for helping your mystery-loving patrons. This will be followed by a working lunch where you'll get to share with your colleagues your mystery RA tips, stumpers and favorite go-to series. The day will wrap up with a lively presentation by mystery author Con Lehane. Throw in some publishers' giveaways, and this makes the perfect midsummer day out of the library. Come prepared to recharge and return to your library with ideas and enthusiasm to share throughout the dog days of summer!




Con Lehane Murder at the 42nd Street Library

Mystery writer Con Lehane will discuss the first book of his new series, Murder at the 42nd Street Library. The book introduces librarian and reluctant sleuth Raymond Ambler, a doggedly curious fellow who uncovers murderous secrets hidden behind the majestic marble façade of New York City’s landmark 42nd Street Library. Murder at the 42nd Street Library follows Ambler and his partners in crime-solving as they track down a killer, shining a light on the dark deeds and secret relationships that are hidden deep inside the famous flagship building at the corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.


PLUS ... a panel of publishers and your librarian colleagues will share upcoming titles and mystery readers advisory tips and tricks!
