Press release submitted by Bettendorf Library



A discussion of "Freezing" by Clea Koff led by librarian Hedy Hustedde will take place in the Bettendorf Public Library's Malmros Conference Room, Saturday, December 8, from 9:30.-11:00 a.m. When a bundle of frozen body parts tumbles out the rear door of a van on a Los Angeles freeway, FBI agent Scott Houston knows just where to go for an off-the-record analysis: Agency 32/1, a non-profit missing persons identification resource center run by forensic anthropologists. Books are funded by the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library and are available for loan on a first-come basis at the previous month's discussion and, after that, at the Information Desk. New members are always welcome.
