A Kiss Before Dying

In October, the Mystery Book Club at will be talking about the Ira Levin classic (and his first book) A Kiss Before Dying. It has been made into movies twice, once in the 1950s, starring Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward, and once in the early 1990s with Matt Dillon and Sean Young, so we'll probably talk about those, too. For those of you who aren't familiar with Ira Levin, he went on to write Rosemary's Baby and other classics.

Looking ahead, our featured mystery in November will be Agatha Christie's Sleeping Murder (a Miss Marple) and in December we will feature Janet Evanovich's new Stephanie Plum, Visions of Sugarplums.

Starting in either November or December, I'm not sure which, I will also start moderating a stand-alone book club featuring the new Nicholas Sparks book.

In the meantime, we are still talking about Ruth Rendell's eerie book, The Water's Lovely, if you feel like joining the conversation!
