Murder in the Library: Hulas and Homicide

Hula legend Winnie Waheli is found dead on Kikiwai Beach early on the morning of the annual hula contest. Winnie has made quite a few enemies through the years and one of them has done her in. Who would dare end the career of the maven of movement? Could someone have plotted the death of the darling of divatude? Or, was this just the result of a temper tantrum by a close associate? You must solve the murder before the killer strikes again. Listen carefully to the suspects, study the crime scene, and watch for any unusual circumstances. Only the sleuth with the most correct answers will win the prize! Light refreshments will be served. For adults only. Registration is required; please call 330-744-8636 or visit www.libraryvisit.org. Attendees are encouraged to dress Hawaiian style.
