Find a Mystery

Instructor(s): Caren Pita
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

There’s something mysterious about Writers & Books. Was the building designed by a man who talked to ghosts? Where does the staircase go and what’s with the little door at the top? It’s a mystery! Whether your favorite sleuth is Nancy Drew or Herculeah Jones, Dink Duncan or Encyclopedia Brown, you’ll discover clues in the books you love to make your own mysteries. We’ll make up our own curious crime-solvers, complete with lovable sidekicks like Dr. Watson, Betty, and Hamisher the Hamster. We are going to find mystery all over the neighborhood—and get to the bottom of each one. Get out your thinking caps, drawing hats, walking shoes, and clever disguises and we’ll write up some mysteries of our own. Final projects can be stories, graphic novels, or staged performances!
