Book group to discuss ‘Blood’

MARQUETTE — Once Upon A Crime, the Book Group for Mystery Lovers will meet at 7 p.m. Dec.13 in the Dandelion Cottage Room at the Peter White Public Library to discuss “Blood of the Wicked” by Leighton Gage.

Brazil is a country with deep-rooted social and political problems, where less than one percent of the population owns half the arable land, where the wealthy live in gated, guarded luxury while the poor are crammed into squalid shantytowns, and where corrupt local police enforce their own laws.

“Blood of the Wicked” continues a year of reading “Mysteries from South of the Equator” each month.

New members are welcome. For more information, call 228-9953.
