The Case of the Highwood Library Sherlock Holmes Group

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle introduced the world to Sherlock Holmes with the publication of A Study in Starlet in 1887. Now 130 years later, the great sleuth of Baker Street remains the world’s most popular fictional detective, with much exposure on television and the cinema. Yet, there is nothing quite like the brilliantly descriptive prose and coherent deductive reasoning found in Doyle’s great Holmes’ stories.
Sherlock Holmes reading and discussion groups have popped up around the world. There is a most congenial one locally here in northern suburban Chicago at the Highwood Library that meets and discusses a story every two months. My friend Brenda has been an enthusiastic member of this group now going on a decade.
The next discussion group of the Highwood Public Library will be October 3 at 7:00 p.m. Under discussion is “The Adventure of the Golden Prince-Nez.” If you have interest in this group, let Brenda know by contacting her at
