The St. Johns County Public Library System is pleased to announce that Alex Grecian’s The Yard has been chosen as this year’s St. Johns Reads book. A tale of murder, forensics and the teeming mysteries of Victorian London, The Yard takes the reader to a world where criminology was a new science and fear and depravity lurked just below the surface of 19th century civilized London society.
The Yard is now available for reservation and checkout. The library has created a full slate of programming for the month of February, centered on the reading and enjoyment of this exciting mystery. From book talks to films and programs about the Victorian Language of Flowers, there will be something for everyone! The big finale will be an appearance by Alex Grecian himself, on Saturday, February 23 at the County Auditorium!
