Message about 2021 Murder on the Menu:

As many of you know, Murder on the Menu (in Wetumpka) and Murder in the Magic City (in Birmingham) have been partnering together for many years in order to bring in mystery writers from around the country. Working together we are able to offer what turns out to be, for the authors, a nice three-day, two-city, conference.  As coordinators of these events, Tammy Lynn and Margaret Fenton would very soon be extending author invitations, and tackling many of the pre-arrangements that have to be made in order to hold such events. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, as well as the safer at home order in place here by the Governor, the decision has been made to NOT have Murder on the Menu or Murder in the Magic City in 2021.  Plans are to pick this up again Sunday Feb 6th,  2022 so be sure to check back next summer for updates and announcements.   

Many thanks to FOWL officers, volunteers, and library staff who have always been willing to help in any way needed with Murder on the Menu.  We are also very grateful for the support the community has shown this event over the past 15 years, and look forward to gathering together again
