Perrot P.I.s: “Bruno, Chief of Police,” by Martin Walker

Join us on Monday night, November 27, at 7 pm in the Youth Services Program Room, Radcliffe Children’s Library, for our discussion of Bruno, Chief of Police, by Martin Walker.

Meet Benoit Courréges, affectionately named Bruno, chief of police in a small village in the South of France where the rituals of the café still rule. A former soldier, Bruno has embraced the slow rhythms of country life. But the murder of an elderly North African who fought in the French army galvanizes his attention: The man had a swastika carved into his chest. When a visiting scholar helps untangle the dead man’s past, Bruno’s suspicions turn toward a motive more complex than hate, back to a tortured period of French history.

November Mahjong Classes for Adults @ the Library

Join our 3-part Learn to Play Mahjong Classes for Adults on Wednesdays, November 1, 8, and 15, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, in the Youth Services Program Room of the Radcliffe Children’s Library.

Our instructor, Rhonda Greif, has been playing and teaching mahjong for 10+ years. She grew up in the early 70’s listening to the clacking sounds of the tiles during her mom’s weekly game with the “mahj ladies.” In 2010, she learned to play after her mom passed away, and she inherited her mahjong sets. Not long after learning, Rhonda found her niche in teaching others.

Please pre-register for this 3-part series. Note: You must register for each part separately. This series was added to accommodate a waiting list from our September series. There are only 4 seats left. For more information, contact Judy Sgammato at 203-637-1066 x15.
