The Book Discussion Group will meet on Wednesday, October  19 at 6:00 p.m. (please note change of time) to discuss Louise Penny’s Still Life.  If you’ve never read any of Louise Penny’s books, you are in for a treat as you meet the amiable and lovable Chief Inspector Armand Gamache.

The story takes place in the charming, fictional  town of Three Pines, Quebec, just north of the U. S. border. Gamache, of the Surete du Quebec, and his team of investigators are called into the scene of a suspicious death. The locals are certain it’s a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul and is certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bow hunter.

This book is the first in a delightful and engaging series featuring Inspector Gamache, as he commands his forces with integrity and quiet courage.

If you would like to join in the discussion, you may stop by the library to pick up a copy of the book.  Warning:  you may become addicted to Louise Penny and Armand Gamache!
