(3rd Thursdays)

An informal discussion of  books, film and theater, led by a facilitator. No requirements to read or see any particular book, film or play. Everyone is invited to share ideas and reflections on the selected theme.

This Month: The Criminal Mind: Join the conversation about the workings — and consequences– of criminal minds. An endless stream of true crime and psychological thriller and suspense books, films and television shows about criminals try to keep up with the public’s craving to know what makes criminal minds tick. Edgar Allen Poe may have been the first novelist to explore the fiction side of this genre, followed by many greats, including Daphne Du Maurier, whose books fascinated master psychological suspense film director Alfred Hitchcock, who adapted her Jamaica Inn (1939), Rebecca (1940) and The Birds (1963) into films. For TV, there is “Criminal Minds,” and “Lie to Me.” The Oxygen network devotes its programming to true crimes.
