Our third installment of the newly-minted Brown Bag Mysteries creeps to life with a tale from Roald Dahl. The famed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, Roald Dahl was a master of witty, off-kilter writing that leaves the reader feeling unsettled and delighted all at the same time. Tuesday's adult storytime presentation of The Landlady is just such a story.

Grab something to munch at Civic Center Eats or bring your own brown bag from home; then join us for lunch and an adult storytime on Tuesdays at the Central Library. Each week, we’ll read some of the greatest short stories, old and new – you’ll hear stories of suspense, thrills and dark humor. Reading will begin at 12:15 p.m. and will last approximately 30 minutes, so you’ll have time to enjoy your lunch and our story, and get back to work before the boss even knows you’re gone! And our sponsor, Whole Foods Market, will provide a variety of sweet finishes for each storytime. What’s for dessert? That’s a mystery that you’ll have to solve by attending!
