“Still Life” Book Discussion

January 8

6 PM Mystery and Muffins Book Discussion

The author, Louise Penny, lives in Sutton Canada and sets her book in Three Pines, a small village in the Eastern Townships. Some people think she is writing about Knowlton in her books, other say Sutton or Abercorn! Armand Gamache is her charismatic and clever detective on the case. An art show, an archery club, and a murder keep Gamache and his team busy in this charming village. We have copies available if you are interested. The next date will be January 8th at 6 PM. I hope you can join us then! For more information call us at 848-3313 or check our website
