Saturday, April 1 at 10:30 AM – April Fool Dead by Carolyn Hart- Library Reading Room

Summary from Goodreads: “Death is no joke on Broward’s Rock, though reading about deadly doings remains as popular a pastime as ever for citizens of the stormy South Carolina sea island. Annie Darling has conceived of an ingenious promotional scheme to draw customers into her Death on Demand bookshop for the upcoming in-store appearance by world-class mystery author Emma Clyde. Offering a free book to anyone who can solve a series of clues about popular whodunits, Annie and hubby Max pass out their flyers all over town. But an April Fool prankster is distributing a counterfeit flyer, supposedly devised by the Darlings, offering clues to several lethal local “accidents” that have occurred lately — including the drowning of Ms. Clyde’s own husband — complete with not-so-vague accusations of murder.”

In the ensuing battle of wits between the sinister Count Dracula and a determined group of adversaries, Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing deeply into questions of human identity and sanity, and illuminating dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire “
