The Wolfe Pack, the organization of fans of Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin, has announced its book discussion meeting dates for 2013. Designed for fans who either live in the New York City area or who may be visiting here on those dates, the book talks are great fun, as the group works its way slowly through all the books and novellas - and then, of course, starts over again at the beginning.
The meetings are generally held at a local New York City pub, with separate checks for attendees who want to have food and/or drink. The books and dates this year:
Monday, January 28: "Method Three for Murder" and "Rodeo Murder" (the last two novellas in Three at Wolfe's Door;
Monday, March 18: Too Many Clients;
Monday, May 20: The Final Deduction;
Monday, September 16: Gambit;
Friday, December 6 (part of the annual Black Orchid weekend festivities): Book Event TBD - probably something from the novellas in Trio for Blunt Instruments.
The New England raceme of the Wolfe Pack, meanwhile, has a book discussion event planned in Acton, MA, on Sunday, March 24, discussing both Where There's a Will and Black Orchids.
You will find full details on the Wolfe Pack's website.
If you're in a position to join us for any of the events, please do so - no resrvations necessary. The discussions are lively and they are very enjoyable for any Nero Wolfe fan - and new Wolfean readers are always welcomed.
For that matter, you might consider joining the Wolfe Pack - currently, it's $35 for two years' membership, and that includes four issues of the privately-published Gazette. Check it all out at the website. Hope to see you at one of the meetings!
