Milton, MA – “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the Milton Reads’ 2014 selection, Milton Public Library officials announced.
The book is the latest selection in the “Milton Reads” series, and like previous selections, it will be accompanied by special events related to the book.
The 12 stories featured in “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” were originally published as individual magazine stories during 1891-1892. “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” for instance, is considered one of Doyle’s most popular stories and a favorite of the author. It is a “locked room mystery,” in that a murder takes place under seemingly impossible circumstances. Participants can read one or all of the stories.
Books are available for borrowing at the library, and free copies of “The Speckled Band” will be made available to the public, funded by The Friends of the Milton Public Library, the sponsor of Milton Reads.
Planned fall events will feature author talks, a life-sized game of Clue for the entire family, films and more.
