The Diver’s Clothes Lie Empty by Vendela Vida
Discussion: Tuesday, May 9, 6:30 pm
In Vendela Vida’s taut and mesmerizing novel of ideas, a woman travels to Casablanca, Morocco, on mysterious business. While checking into her hotel, the woman is robbed of her wallet and passport—all of her money and identification. Though the police investigate, the woman senses an undercurrent of complicity between the hotel staff and the authorities—she knows she’ll never recover her possessions. Stripped of her identity, she feels burdened by the crime yet strangely liberated by her sudden freedom to be anyone she chooses.

Death of a Doxy by Rex Stout
Discussion: Thursday, May 18, 7 pm
“Death of a Doxy, considered a Stout classic, opens with the death of Isabel Kerr, found dead in her lavish bedroom. Was her boyfriend, her ‘sugar daddy,’ or someone else responsible? Nero Wolfe puts himself and his side-kick, Archie Goodwin, to work to unravel the mystery and the tangle of relationships as this vintage Wolfe detective story unfolds. Recommended.” — Library Journal
