Share Your Book Group or Library Display for Mystery Month!

Happy anniversary to us! Booklist‘s tenth annual Mystery Month will be here before we know it, starting on May 1. This year, we’d like you to contribute: Are you a member of a mystery-themed book group? Are you a librarian who loves to make creative, mystery-themed book displays? (Are you both?) We want to hear from you! We’re planning to publish profiles of book groups right here on the Booklist Reader, and to share creative book displays on a variety of Booklist channels using the hashtag #mysterymonth.

If you want to contribute or are simply curious to learn more, just email me, Briana Shemroske, at [email protected]

Mystery Month 2015Each May, Booklist publishes a Mystery Showcase issue, jam-packed with reviews of new mysteries and crime fiction, and featuring the The Year’s Best Crime Novels, the Hard-Boiled Gazetteer, Top 10 Crime Fiction for Youth, Top 10 Crime Fiction Audiobooks, and much more. The Booklist Reader builds on the theme with additional lists, articles, and interviews publishing every day of the month. This year, in addition to book-group profiles and mystery displays, we’re planning special readers’-advisory lists, book recommendations based on your favorite true-crime podcasts, a look at library escape rooms, cover trends in crime fiction, and much more.

And that’s STILL not all: Mystery Month features two webinars (April 30 and May 14), dedicated issues of the Read Alert (April 30) and Booklist Online Exclusives (May 10) newsletters, and a bonus issue of Read Alert wrapping it all up (May 30). Going to ALA Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.? You can sample one last taste of Mystery Month 2019 at the Booklist booth on June 23 when we host Bloody Marys . . . and Murder—a meet ‘n’ greet starring some terrific authors!

Booklist would like to thank sponsors HarperCollins and Penguin Random House for their generous support of Mystery Month 2019.
