Maigret is Afraid by Georges Simenon

Monday • December 18 • 6pm

U District store

Join Nick's Picks book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Georges Simenon wrote almost 200 novels. A novel took him about two weeks to finish. His work was translated into over 50 languages. He wrote 75 Inspector Maigret mysteries. He left everyone else in the dust.

On his way home from a convention, Maigret stops to visit a friend. His friend's village is in the grips of terror and the people are relieved to see the famous detective. But Maigret doesnt want to solve this mystery. Its not his business. Then theres another death. And another. Plunge into the dark psychology of one of the most fascinating authors in the world.
