World Book Night: Crime and Cocktails in the Library

Tue 23 April

Cambridge University Library

Calling all armchair detectives!

Join Cambridge University Library for a KILLER NIGHT of mystery-solving, crime fiction and cocktails!

Delve into the world of cosy crime with this special in-person edition of The Really Popular Book Club, as we discuss the best-selling first instalment of Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club.

There’s been a Murdle in the library! Put your powers of deduction to the test with official addictive logic puzzles from Deductive Logico.

Fiendishly competitive? Challenge your next victim to a round at our board games station curated by Waterstones Cambridge.

Be inspired by live readings from students and alumni of Cambridge University Institute of Continuing Education’s Crime & Thriller Writing Masters Course.

And don’t miss the opportunity to explore the exhibition, Murder by the Book, after hours!

Enjoy with live jazz and a cocktail bar in our fabulous Art Deco building.
