Mystery Book Club
Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m. in the Community Room

"​An Inspector Calls​,​”​ a series of mystery book discussions moderated by Carole Shmurak, Ph.D.​

An Inspector Calls, a play written by English dramatist J. B. Priestley and first performed in 1946 in the UK, is considered to be one of the classics of mid-20th-century English theatre. Priestley’s inspector had a supernatural, socialist agenda, but our four inspectors — Wexford, Jury, Morse, and Slider — have no agendas other than discovering the truth, bringing the criminal to justice, and entertaining the reader.
