In the early 14th century, English monk Brother Williams turns detective to solve a murder at a Clunic abbey in Italy, where heresy is the motivation. His tools are the logic of Aristotle, the theology of Aquinas, the empirical insights of Roger Bacon-all sharpened to a glistening edge by wry humor and a ferocious curiosity. Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco follows Brother William as he collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey, where the most interesting things happen at night.Brown Bag book discussions feature a new mystery title each month. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion. Library book discussions are open to all who are committed to reading and talking about books.
