Join us for a luncheon at The University Club, featuring authors Levi Stahl and Stacey Shintani. Their new book The Daily Sherlock Holmes: A Year of Quotes from the Case-Book of the World's Greatest Detective is the perfect bedside companion for fans of the world's only consulting detective. Within these pages readers will find a quotation for every day of the year, drawn from across the Conan Doyle canon. Beloved characters and familiar lines recall favorite stories and scenes, while other passages remind us that Conan Doyle had a way with description and a ready wit. Moriarty and Mycroft, Lestrade and Mrs. Hudson; the Hound, the Red-Headed League, the Speckled Band, and the dread Reichenbach Falls--it's all here, anchored, of course, in that unforgettable duo of Holmes and Watson. No book published this year will bring a Holmes fan more pleasure. Come, readers. The game is afoot.
About the Authors:
Levi Stahl is the marketing director of the University of Chicago Press and the editor of The Getaway Car: A Donald E. Westlake Nonfiction Miscellany.
Stacey Shintani is a project manager at One Design Company in Chicago and, like Holmes in his retirement, a beekeeper.

“Dr. Watson, Mr. Sherlock Holmes,” said Stamford, introducing us.
“How are you?” he said cordially, gripping my hand with a strength for which I should hardly have given him credit.
