The Cloak & Dagger Literary Society
An unconventional book discussion group for mystery lovers...

The Cloak & Dagger Literary Society is founded on the idea of members meeting to chat about mysteries they love--no assigned books to read, nothing to prepare ahead of time. Each month will be structured around a different topic. Enjoy a short presentation from librarian Miki Wolfe, and leave with a curated list of titles guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning mystery lover.

Can't make a meeting, but still interested in receiving a list of mystery authors each month? Sign up for our monthly newsletter and never miss a thing! Each newsletter will be filled with author information, and links to award-winning new titles and series.
