MYSTERY WEEK: All About Sherlock Holmes

Tuesday, August 207:00—9:00 PMMeeting RoomTewksbury Public Library300 Chandler Street, Tewksbury, MA, 01876

Sherlock Holmes has been fascinating audiences for 130 years.  What is it about this character that has made him a world famous phenomenon?  Join Sherlockian expert Robert Fritsch, who will be your guide to 'All Things Sherlock'. You will learn about Sherlock Holmes's main characters, including Holmes himself.  Highlights of the four novels and 56 short stories will be briefly examined, with emphasis on the women in Holmes life.  But the story of Sherlock is so much more than the literary works, which have not been out of print since they were first published! You will take a tour of it all, including the movies, TV shows, actors, magazines and Sherlockian Societies! This is a fun, fast-paced, interactive program and audience participation is welcomed. Fun mini-quizzes will be interspersed throughout the program.  Vote for your favorite Sherlock actor (Hint Hint: Jonny Lee Miller is the only correct answer!), test your knowledge of Sherlock trivia, and more!  Attendees are encouraged to ask questions. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
