The Group

by Jacques WagrezThe East Bay Mystery Readers’ Group officially began in January 1994. We are delighted to have three members who have been continuously active since 1994.

Our membership has waxed as people join of us, and waned as members move away or become busy with life, over the years. Currently between 7 and 12 members attend our monthly meetings. Ages range from the mid-20s to the mid-70s. There are approximately an additional 40 members, some local and some from as far away as Virginia, Massachusetts, Toronto and Nova Scotia, who follow the group's activities and occasionally send their critiques of the books being read.

For questions about the East Bay Mystery Readers’ Group, you may email LJ.

New members are always welcome.

The kid with the flashlight under the covers, having imaginary conversations with Jo March. Then she grew up and learned digital editing, i.e., interactive media (including, potentially,interacting with Jo March) which she interprets as magic.
