Cozy Mysteries: Cuddle Up with a Gentle Whodunit
Thursday, October 13, 2022 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM CDT
Do your readers enjoy clever puzzles and crime-solving sleuths à la Agatha Christie novels or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, but not the gritty, dark violence prevalent in thrillers and hardboiled mysteries? Then join Sheila Hubertus, one of the Reader’s Advisory Librarians at the Talking Book Program, as she breaks down Cozy Mysteries. Learn all about this gentle genre, classic and new titles/authors to watch, trends to know, and how to help your cozy mystery readers find their next read.
