Next Meetup

Let's meet up and talk about mysteries!
Each month we discuss the three (3) books which had been chosen previously by the group. Some people will have read all three, some only one, and some haven't had a chance to read any of the books, but we still like people to come. We then talk about what other mysteries each of us has read during the month and select books for future months. It costs ~$150/year to have our group on Meetup and for website fees. As of January 2018, there will be a $20 annual membership fee, $10 if you feel you'll only be able to attend half the meetings. RSVPs are open at NOON on the Wednesday prior to each meeting. We also attend periodic Literary Salons, held at the home of a friend, which have included such authors as Ann Cleeves, Cara Black, Don Winslow, Colin Cotterill, Martin Walker and others. Information on the books selected can be found at https://www.meetup.com/East-Bay-Mystery-Readers-Group/messages/boards/ as well as on our Goodreads group site at https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/2176-ebmrg our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/324828737616066/ and on our website at: http://www.ebmrg.org/index.htm Please be aware that my place will only seat a maximum of 18 people. If you RSVP and then are unable to come, please cancel so that there's room for someone else to take your place that month. If you have a problem finding parking, call me and will find a solution [masked]). Coming early (anytime after 6:15 p.m.) sometimes helps.

What we're about

The East Bay Mystery Readers’ Group (EBMRG) is a fun, casual group formed in January 1994 and is looking for new members. However, we want members who will commit to attending the meetings. The group meets from 7–9 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at my apartment (ground floor so no stairs, but I do have two cats, come early to ensure parking). Therefore space is limited to a maximum of 14 attendees each month. Each month we discuss the three (3) books which had been chosen previously by the group. Some people will have read all three, some only one, and some haven't had a chance to read any of the books, but we still like people to come. RSVPs for each event are opened the Wednesday prior to the meeting. This is to prevent folks from RSVP-ing yes for events months in advance and then forgetting, which would take valuable spaces away from others who would like to attend.

Meetup groups cost money to run. Therefore, I do ask that members donate one or two bucks when they attend to help me recoup the cost of running the group. I shall be collecting $2 per meeting per person to cover MeetUp costs. By consensus of the group, in January, that will switch to a $20 annual membership fee (Meetup charges $120/year). But if you like mysteries, we're the group.
