MASTERPIECE BOOK CLUB for Sherlock Fans and others

MASTERPIECE on PBS has just launched The MASTERPIECE Book Club. The club will serve as the destination for book-loving MASTERPIECE fans, hosting exciting features for popular programs such as Sherlock and Downton Abbey. Features will include recommended reading related to current MASTERPIECE shows, insights into what cast and crew are reading, related recipes perfect for a book club meeting, British book news, and much more. (I've posted my own recipes for Scones on DyingforChocolate.com to accompany Downton Abbey viewing--check out Mrs Patmore's Chocolate Cherry Scones here)

Sherlock enthusiasts will get reading inspiration from Sherlock co-creator and actor Mark Gatiss, who reveals his favorite Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories and the mystery authors he reads most. Sherlock book club features also include a list of titles to make anyone a Sherlock Holmes expert and cookbooks from bestselling mystery authors.
(Check out the Sherlock Holmes cookbooks from my tie-in cook book collection in Mystery Readers Journal: Culinary Crime II).

There will be special collections assembled for other MASTERPIECE mysteries including Endeavour and Inspector Lewis later this summer.

NOTE: Sherlock’s 90-minute special, The Abominable Bride, will be rebroadcast on Sunday, January 10th at 10pm EST.
