Cozy Read & Tea Book Club

Cozy mysteries, also referred to as “cozies,” are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community. Cozies thus stand in contrast to hardboiled fiction, which features violence and sexuality more explicitly and centrally to the plot. The term “cozy” was first coined in the late 20th century when various writers produced work in an attempt to re-create the Golden Age of Detective Fiction.

Let’s talk about our Cozy Mysteries, have some tea and cookies and exchange titles for future reads.

Intended for Adults.

African American Read-In Chain

The Jackson District Library and the Jackson Branch of the NAACP will host the first African American Read-In Chain for Jackson County on February 23, 2019. During the month of February, schools, churches, libraries, community and professional organizations are urged to make literacy a significant part of African American History Month by displaying and promoting the works of African American authors.

Jackson County residents, inclusive of all ages and nationalities, may sign-up to read a selection from a book, recite a poem or choose a portion from a book all written by an African American author during this Community Read-In.

The finale will feature Kevin Collins and his Kuungana African Drum and Dance Company of Flint, MI. Their energetic dance moves and the vibrant sounds of African drums will weave together the excitement of literacy and cultural. Be a part of this celebratory event as Jackson County joins the “chain” of over 6 million participants reading works by African American authors.

Originated through the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English in 1989, the event is now supported by the National Council of Teachers of English and endorsed by the International Reading Association.

Contact the Community Engagement Department of the Jackson District Library for more information. Call at 517-788-4099 ext. 1317 or email at CEdepartment@myjdl.com.
