I think that in terms of popularity, few genres can compete with detective stories. Detectives are read by both men and women, both young and wise old men, and professionals in the investigation, and amateurs.

That is why we decided that the next topic of our literary salon will be devoted to detective stories. Its regulars have already sorted out their volumes and started reading!

Would you like to join our salon? Read the detective and come on Thursday, 05/25/2023 at 10.30 to the library.
