Classics You Probably Don’t Know
For this challenge, you will travel back in time. The Dept. of English at McDaniel College has begun an effort to save pre-1891 detective stories (pre-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) that otherwise might be lost to mystery fans for all time. They are compiling a directory of them called The Westminster Detective Library in which you can find and read these stories for free. Most of them are very short because they were originally published in newspapers. Pick one and read it and then post something about it on social media. There are buttons on the site to post directly on Facebook, Twitter, etc. or you can create your own post and link it or refer people to The Westminster Detective Library. These stories are the pre-cursors to the cozies we love today. Go HERE to pick a story. Make sure you post about it and include #saveourcozies #readathon.
