Celebrate the spring One Book One Community selection, The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with a riveting book talk led by Sherry Thomas, author of the Lady Sherlock series including A Study in Scarlet Women.
Thomas will be at the Main Library at Goodwood at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 16, to explore with adults the notion that the beloved character Sherlock Holmes can be anyone – even a woman. In Thomas’s books readers meet Charlotte Holmes who has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of women in an upper class society. When London is struck by three unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and father, Charlotte is determined to find the real wrongdoers and clear the family name. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation. Copies of Thomas’s books will be available for purchase at the program.
