The East Bay Mystery Readers’ Group (EBMRG) formed in January 1994. The group meets from 7–9 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month.

The group is set up on MeetUp at http://www.meetup.com/East-Bay-Mystery-Readers-Group/. This will make it easy for you to join us, RSVP starting at noon on the Wednesday prior to each meeting, and under “Discussions” provides another spot to find the upcoming discussion books.

It costs ~$200/year to have our group on Meetup and for website fees. To offset that, there is a $20 annual membership fee, $15 for three-quarters of the year, $10 semi-annual, and $5 for 3 months.

Each month we discuss the three (3) books which had been chosen previously by the group. Some people will have read all three, some only one, and some haven't had a chance to read any of the books, but we still like people to come. Our remote members are welcome, and encouraged, to send in their comments prior to the meeting so they may be included.

Our meeting agenda:

  • Discussion of the selected books – This is not a heavy discussion. We don't get into "what was the meaning behind" but do more liked it, hated it, why, and whether you would read more by that author.
  • What else did you read? – Round-the-group discussion – We each talk briefly about other books we've read during the month
  • Selection of future books – At this point, books are selected by LJ, our coordinator. However, suggestions from group members are most welcome.
  • We try to have different types (cozy, medium-dark, dark) so everyone has at least one book that appeals to them.

Information on the books selected can be found online at MeetUp > East Bay Mystery Reader's Group
as well as on our Goodreads > EBMRG group.

New members, both local and remote, are welcome.
