Mystery Lovers Book Club meets at noon every second Thursday of each month at the Cabell County Public Library.

The club focuses on a variety of mystery books and short stories ranging from cozy and contemporary, to the noir dark side of crime.

Whether a reader prefers a fun Agatha Christie novel, or a darker novel by Stieg Larsson he or she should feel right at home with this club.

Jenny Pennington, leader of the book club, said the club was a passion that turned into a proud tradition.

“This is the fifth year that we’ve had the book club,” Pennington said. “I love to read, particularly mystery novels, and I thought that I would start a mystery book club that way I could get involved more.”

Local reader Derek Smythers said he loves spending time at the library.

“It gives me a chance to relax and read a book,” Smythers said. “It helps me clear my mind and enjoy myself, even for a little bit.”

The club is open to anyone who is interested, and Pennington encourages Marshall University students to attend.

“We have a very laid back philosophy,” Pennington said. “We just have a good time.”
