    Join Archer Mayor for a talk on his new Joe Gunther novel, Bury the Lead!

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  Joe Gunther and the VBI team are investigating a murder and an arson case—both potentially related to an outbreak of ebola. When the body of a young woman is found near a trail at a popular ski mountain, the case falls to Joe Gunther and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation (VBI). They quickly have a suspect, Mick Durocher, and a confession, but not everyone on the team is convinced. Despite Mick’s ready admission, investigators quickly sense there might be more going on than is immediately apparent. At the same time, a large local business is being targeted with escalating acts of vandalism—a warehouse fire, a vandalized truck, a massive cooling system destroyed—resulting in loss of life. And either by coincidence, or not, Mick Durocher, the self-confessed murderer, was once employed by this very company. These two puzzling cases—now possibly connected—are further complicated by the sidelining of a key member of VBI, Willy Kunkle, who undergoes surgery at a hospital that appears to be having an unlikely—and suspiciously timed—outbreak of Ebola. Joe and his team pursue these cases, uncovering motives that might link them, while proving that trust betrayed can be a toxic virus, turning love into murderous loathing. Indeed, behind the mayhem and murder, Joe must uncover a tragic history before another victim dies.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Archer Mayor, in addition to writing the New York Times bestselling Joe Gunther series, is an investigator for the sheriff's department, the state medical examiner, and has twenty-five years of experience as a firefighter/EMT. He lives near Brattleboro, Vermont.

  • Adult Book Club

    Thursday December 13, 5:00 pm

    Instead of meeting monthly to discuss a single book, we meet to talk about what we’ve been reading and maybe bring a book to recommend. Feel free to bring a title to share or a few ideas of what book has made you think, made you laugh, or made you mad. This is a meeting of people who love books, want to chat with other book lovers, and maybe even eat a few snacks.

    If a recommendation sparks your curiosity, any books purchased during or after the meeting receive the 10 percent book club discount.

    While we encourage everyone to read and share their love of books, this book club is for those who read adult fiction. For our younger book lovers, we host a similar book club aimed towards young adult fiction once a month.
