MOUNT VERNON - “The Mystery of Agatha Christie,” a PBS documentary film, will
be featured at the first Brown Bag Chat of the fall season on Wednesday,

Her books remain outsold by only the Bible and the works of Shakespeare. Yet,
the true story of the life of Author Agatha Christie was as shrouded in mystery
as the plots of her novels. Host David Suchet, who played Belgian detective
Hercule Poirot, narrates the close links between the life of the bestselling
mystery author of all time and her work.
From her tempestuous love life filled with heartbreak and betrayal to a bizarre
disappearance which convinced the nation that she had succumbed to the same
horrendous fate as the victims on her pages, the secrets of Agatha Christie are
now being revealed in this one hour documentary film.
The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served or feel
free to bring a brown bag lunch.
