Agatha Christie has kept the world turning the pages of her mystery stories for almost 100 years. She is arguably the most popular and well-known female author in the world. While writing dozens of mystery stories and novels, she was also a celebrated dramatist whose play, The Mousetrap, holds the record as the longest running play on the London stage. On this Tuesday at our Brown Bag Mysteries, we're showcasing a story about investigator Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's greatest detective and insufferable genius. Grab some lunch and join us!
