The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Our next book conversation is about The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency.
Mma Ramotswe starts up her detective agency when she is 34 years old, using the inheritance from her father to move to Botswana's capital city, Gaborone, to buy a house for herself and an office for her new business. She feels a detective needs to know about people more than anything to solve problems for them. The first in a series of nineteen novels written by Alexander McCall Smith, recalls his own upbringing in Gabarone. The book is a delight to read, as is the BBC televsion series of the same name. If you start the first one before Christmas, you might find you can't put them down, and before you know it, you will have entered this world, know all the characters, and help them solve mysteries. 

Please join us and bring a few of your favourite books to talk about as we look ahead and continue to read together.
Wednesday, January 15

We would be delighted to welcome you. 
We meet at 7:00 p.m. for a pot luck dinner, followed by a discussion beginning at 7:30 p.m. Please join us.

Welcome: The St. Anne's Book Group is open to everyone: members of our community, friends, and newcomers who don't know anything about church. We talk about the book! We like to start with an overview by one of our participants who has read the book. We are very fortunate to have welcomed authors to join us as we talk about their book. It's great if you have read the book; you're also welcome if you have not read the book and want to know more about it. We like to make faith connections to the themes of the book - where possible. 

We hold our Book Group in the St. Anne's Ministry Centre, 276 Gladstone Avenue.
