Book Discussion: The Ladies No. 1 Detective Club

Description: Join the book discussion of “The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency” by Alexander McCall Smith at the Rockingham Library. Mma Ramotswe starts up her detective agency when she is 34 years old, using the inheritance from her father to move to the capital city Gaborone, Botswana to buy a house for herself and find an office for her new business. She feels a detective needs to know about people more than anything, to solve problems for them. Her story is told in the first novel from birth to opening the detective agency.
Former Botswana educator, Emily Jones (now director of The Putney School) will be on hand to share her experiences in Botswana and talk about some of the people she knew who inspired the characters in Smith’s book. Pick up your copy of the book at the Library’s front desk today.
The Fall series of RFPL Reads book discussions begins with “The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency” in memory of Alicia Kelly (1942-2017), former librarian and book club participant at the Rockingham Library. Alicia appreciated Mma Ramotswe’s approach to friendship and to life.
