The Big Reread: Louise Penny’s Mysteries

Gamache-Re-Read-CoversIn a clever marketing ploy to promote Louise Penny’s forthcoming tenth entry in her popular “Inspector Gamache” series, the author and her publisher are launching a virtual book club to reread the entire series. Starting April 21 with Penny’s Agatha Award-winning debut Still Life, each of the nine titles will be discussed for two weeks, culminating with the August 26  publication of The Long Way Home (Minotaur: St. Martin’s). There will be special guests, a video from Penny, giveaways, discussion questions, and more. Leading the first discussion will be librarian and longtime LJ reviewer Lesa Holstine,

Penny writes on her Facebook page, “This will be like a gathering at Myrna’s New and Used bookstore, only from your own home…. Mostly we hope this’ll be a chance to re-visit Three Pines with others who’ve come to know the village, and see how the characters have grown together and evolved. It’s also a chance to introduce Gamache, Ruth, Clara, Gabri et al to new readers.”

With 4,000 readers already registered, this will be quite the intimate little gathering.The website, goes live on Monday, and you can sign up here for email updates. Happy Reading!
