Just Desserts Mystery Fiction Discussion Group
Lincoln City Libraries – Monthly mystery fiction discussion group at a neighborhood library. Participants are encouraged to read the same mystery novel in advance of the meeting, to discuss as a group. Participants are also encouraged to bring a small dessert selection to share with other readers during the meeting. Coffee and/or juice will be provided. For our February 2018 meeting, Just Desserts members are encouraged to read ANY of the Marcus Didius Falco historical mystery series by Lindsey Davis. The group will be discussing the entire series in broad scope, rather than focusing on one specific volume. Here’s the description of the series from Wikipedia: “Marcus Didius Falco is the fictional central character and narrator in a series of historical mystery crime novels by Lindsey Davis. Using the concepts of modern detective stories (with Falco as the private investigator, roughly translated into the classical world as a delator or “private informer”), the novels portray the world of the Roman Empire under Vespasian. The tone is arch and satirical, but the historical setting is largely accurate.” The series began with "The Silver Pigs" in 1989 and the latest volume published was "Nemesis" in 2009. There’s also been a spin-off series, featuring Falco’s adoptive daughter, who is becoming a female version of her adoptive dad — the Flavia Albia series, with 5 volumes out so far, and a sixth scheduled in 2018. For the purposes of Just Desserts, please do NOT read any of the Flavia Albia series — focus on the Falco series alone. You're not required to have read the novel, though, and guests are always welcome!

National Theatre: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
The Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center – Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of "A Streetcar Named Desire," Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out? ???? "A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted" - Sunday Times ???? "A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable" -The Independent This production was captured live at the Young Vic theatre in London in 2017.
