The Moonstone: Read (and Watch) Along *Zoom Discussion*

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

Join us in reading Wilkie Collin's classic murder mystery The Moonstone, which is always available on Overdrive and Libby. We will read the book in chunks and discuss weekly. After finishing the novel, we'll watch the BBC Miniseries Moonstone streaming through Hoopla, and compare it to the book! The Moonstone is a spellbinding tale of romance, theft, and murder, and is considered the inspiration for the detective mystery genre.
