The Beverly Public Library invites everyone to come out of winter hibernation and join in the March “Staff Pick” reading club on March 29 at 11 a.m. This month’s story is “Books of a Feather” by Kate Carlisle. Carlisle’s mystery books have been on the New York Times bestseller list, and Amazon says this about her latest novel: “Brooklyn’s friend runs the Covington Library, which is hosting an exhibit featuring John James Audubon’s massive masterpiece, Birds of America. During the gala celebrating the book, she is approached by Jared Mulrooney, the president of the Bay Area Birdwatchers Society, to repair a lesser known book of Audubon drawings.

At the same party, Brooklyn is flying high after she’s asked to refurbish a rare copy of Poor Richard’s Almanack when Mulrooney’s body is discovered in the library. Soon more troubles ruffle Brooklyn’s feathers. Her parents pop in for a visit with an unsavory friend in tow, and there’s a strange man on her tail. With danger beginning to circle Brooklyn’s every move, it’s clear she must find answers before things really go south. . . . ”

If anything catches your attention while you’re reading the book, jot it down and bring your list to the meeting. If you read the book, tried to read it, or just didn’t like it, come and share your view point as well.

Drinks and a light snack will be provided.

The Library’s afterschool program continues Thursday, March 21 from 3:30-5 p.m. Students are invited to stop in and explore a new country through their snacks.
