A Lesson in Secrets: A Maisie Dobbs Novel
Thursday, April 14 at 7 PM
Don't miss a great reading by the author of the beloved Maisie Dobbs novels!
In Winspear's most recent book, Maisie's first assignment for the British Secret Service takes her undercover to Cambridge as a professor, and leads to the investigation of a murderous web of activities being conducted by the up-and-coming Nazi party.
“The latest in Winspear's terrific series of historical mysteries...Maisie is one of the great fictional heroines, equal parts haunted and haunting.” — Parade
