UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. -- A Canadian drama company plans to bring young adult fiction off the page and into the library next week during Upper Saddle River Library's Young Adult Murder Mystery Dinner.
The event, scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, July 26, is to be held at the library at 245 Lake Street, according to organizers.
The premise is simple: A murder has taken place somewhere in the library and the students must solve the case.
According to organizers, the event is open to students in sixth grade and above with a valid Upper Saddle River Library card.
"This year's theme is that there's a murder in the library," said Katie Neylan, the building's young adult librarian. "Everyone gets to participate and be an investigator. If you're shy, it's not a big deal. You can relax and get to the mystery."
A full dinner will be served during the event, Neylan said.
The night will star a troop of Ontario, Canada-based actors called Shot in the Dark Mysteries.
According to organizers, those wishing to attend the event must register in advance.
