New Crime reading group in Uppsala!

New Crime reading group in Uppsala

UPPSALA | Monday 27th Feb at 19:00

Great news for all you readers of mystery novels out there (in Uppsala): we have the pleasure of introducing a brand new reading group to you – the Crime Reading Group!

We will meet once a month in the Uppsala shop to discuss a mystery novel, either a more hard-boiled, noir kind of book (from our Tough Crime selection), or a more classic crime (from our BritCrime selection). Joining us to lead these groups is James van Loon, author of the psychological mystery novel Blue Magic Woman.

Our first choice is the American novel Dodgers by Bill Beverly.

This is a dark, unforgettable coming-of-age journey, and it’s the story of a young LA gang member named East. Read more about the book and reading group in the email invitation

Sign up for the Uppsala newsletter and tick the box for the Crime reading group to get invitations to future reading group meetings. (Or update your settings if you already subscribe to the newsletter.)
