Celebrate the return of our true crime book club! Join us in the Courtyard for an outdoor meeting where we will be able to social distance, weather permitting. We will discuss this month's true crime title, as well as catch-up with each other about what we've been reading/watching/listening to during the pandemic.

The title for our December 2021 meeting will be JonBenét: Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation by Steve Thomas. Book club copies of this title are available soon for pick-up at the Headquarters Library Reference Desk. Please call 352-334-3940 to check availability. This title is also be available in eBook and eAudiobook formats through Overdrive/Libby.

"Perhaps the most compelling murder case of our day, the death of six-year-old JonBenét Ramsey galvanized the nation-and years after it occurred, the mystery still endures. Who killed the young beauty queen and why? Who is covering up for whom and who is simply lying? In JonBenét, the most authoritative and comprehensive study of the Ramsey murder, a former lead Boulder Police detective, Steve Thomas, explores the case in vivid and fascinating detail-pointing the way toward an analysis of the evidence some deem too shocking to consider." (Goodreads)
