Just what is Cecelia up to now with her Chapter 1 Book Club at the Pearl Public Library?
It's a mystery. It's a mystery of all mysteries! It's rediscovering Agatha Christie. How better to do that than to start at the beginning, right? Riiiiiiight!
The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Agatha Christie's first novel, was first published in 1920, and introduced super sleuth, Hercule Poirot. The fictitious, Belgian detective Poirot would go on to star in 39 of Christie's novels.
OK, let's see what's up....
Emily Inglethorp, of the English countryside manor Styles, is dead. She's really dead. The poor lady was poisoned with strychnine! YIKES!
Who's the first person of interest? Of course, the husband. After all, this guy, upon poor Emily's death, would be riiiiiiiiiiich! But, hold it right there! Let's not get ahead of ourselves! Anyway, it's just not that simple.
Captain Hastings, a guest at Styles, called his friend to help investigate to find out just what went down! And, guess who the friend is? YEP, enter Poirot!
Oh, if it were just a simple case of the husband did it, but the timeline doesn't fit the crime. So, now Poirot must delve into all the personal business of the family living at Styles!
So, who dunnit?!?!?! Read the book and come join the Chapter 1 Book Club meeting Thurs. Mar. 13 at 6 p.m. You don't have to reserve a spot, and you don't have to be a member. Just come by and join the fun discussion and the whole, wonderful Agatha Christie experience!

We'll see you there!
