Black Water Lilies
By Michel Bussi

Monday, January 13, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

In the French village where Monet painted his water lilies, Giverny, the body of an art lover is found in the stream made famous by the artist. A clue on a postcard is discovered in the pocket of the victim Jerome Morval. The postcard may lead to his killer and the rumored painting Black Water Lilies. Michel Bussi is one of France‚Äôs most celebrated mystery writers. Black Water Lilies was translated from the French by Shaun Whiteside and released in the US in 2017.

Each month, a member of Brown Bag Mystery Readers nominates a mystery novel and leads a discussion. A librarian is on-hand to facilitate the book chat and to update the group with any news. All Mechanics' Institute members are welcome to join these meetings. Brown Bag Mystery Readers meets the 2nd Monday of every month (excluding holidays).
