A special treat for Stormy Petrels!!
Our own “Priory Schoolmaster” Sheldon Goldfarb is offering, to Petrel members attending the November meeting, a complimentary copy of his book:
This wonderful book has received many positive reviews by International Sherlockians.
“My name is Sherlock Holmes…my business is that of every other good citizen – to uphold the law.”
November’s adventure was first published in Liberty for March 1927 and in The Strand for April 1927. The last of the short stories, written just 3 years before the death of ACD (aged 71)
On November 5th the Stormy Petrels will meet to discuss “Shoscombe Old Place“, an adventure which is overloaded with “D’s”: death; deception; desperation; drama; denial; deduction; a dark crypt and a dog.
Something unusual has happened at Shoscombe that has caused the inhabitants to behave strangely.
Let’s discuss why!
When: Tuesday, Nov. 5th at 7:00 p.m.
Where: The lounge in the Chatham at Hampton Place.
Bonus Question for those attending: Name two types of fish named in the story.
For an added BONUS, can you name four types of fish mentioned in the story?
