Book Discussion Group with author Jody West 


Tuesday, October 18, 2016

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Discussion Topic:

"Darkness at First Light"

Book discussion is about the themes in "Darkness at First Light"—guided questions starting with John Milton’s Paradise Lost, the symbol of darkness, the opening paragraph, darkness as in individuality, morality, society and criminality. Darkness vs. Light. (i.e. law enforcement).  And, of course, murder—the darkness about which she writes and many read. Why do we seek the darkness?

 Join Jody for this interesting discussion!

 AUTHOR BIODying for Vengeance is the first in the Carlisle Crime Cases series of murder/mysteries featuring Homicide Detectives Christopher Snow and Erin McCoy by J M West, Professor Emerita of English Studies at Harrisburg Area Community College, The Gettysburg Campus. She also taught at Messiah College and Shippensburg University as an adjunct and served as Assistant Director of the Leaning Center (SU). She has previously published poetry and Glory in the Flower, her debut novel, which plunges four coeds into the turbulent sixties.

     A member of Sisters in Crime, she and her husband live near Carlisle, Pennsylvania. They have two sons and two grandsons. In her spare time, West volunteers at The Bookery, Bosler Memorial Library’s used bookstore, participates in a book discussion group, and reads voraciously. West’s fourth Snow/McCoy adventure, Had A Dying Fall, is due out soon.
