About The Thursday Murder Club:
In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. But when a brutal killing takes place on their very doorstep, the Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.
The pack contains:
- An extract of The Thursday Murder Club
A set of reading group questions
- An exclusive Q&A with the author, Richard Osman
- A feedback form for organisers
Please place your order by midnight on 25 August 2020. You will be sent a physical pack and emailed a digital version early September 2020, however you will have the option to opt out of a printed pack if you'd prefer.
Please note, by ordering this pack you are agreeing to use the materials and send feedback using the included form by 31 October (but please let us know if your ability to run your group is delayed due to the pandemic)
We'd love to see you share pictures on social media (these do not need to include people's faces) using @PenguinUKBooks (@penguinbooks on Facebook) and @readingagency and the hashtag #thethursdaymurderclub.
