• Poison Pen Mystery Book Club: Enjoy a discussion of mysteries new and old over coffee and treats. February’s book is “Our Man in the Dark” by Rashad Harrison. In 1964, John Estem is a bookkeeper at Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference. When his idea for a march is scuttled, Estem embezzles from the organization to fund the march himself, but squanders most of the money. In his compromised state, Estem is an easy mark for FBI agents who recruit him to inform on purported Communist infiltration of the SCLC. But when it soon becomes clear that the FBI wants to use information about Dr. King’s personal life to discredit the civil rights movement, Estem turns the tables on his handlers.
