The Wallingford Mystery Group

The Wallingford Mystery Group

This group meets the first Wednesday of the month, September through December and February through June, at 3 p.m., in the Community Room at the Wallingford Public Library. We read both classic and contemporary mysteries and have been meeting since 2011. Books are chosen thematically; this Fall’s theme is “The Game’s Afoot,” mysteries involving sports.



Fall 2023: The Game’s Afoot    (all hybrid – in person or on Zoom) 

 The game’s afoot” is a phrase often used by Sherlock Holmes to Watson to mark the start of a crime-solving adventure. In the books for this fall, we’ll read about crimes that involve actual games: basketball, football and tennis.
