Magpie Murders—Advance Screening October 5 at The Center in Colfax

Northwest Public Broadcasting (NWPB) and Whitman County Library are thrilled to announce an advance screening of PBS Masterpiece’s Magpie Murders will be held at The Center in Colfax, Wednesday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m.

Magpie Murders stars Lesley Manville (Mrs. Harries Goes to Paris, The Crown) as Susan Ryeland, the editor of murder mystery author Alan Conway’s novels. Upon turning in his last manuscript, Conway is discovered dead soon after, just as Susan realizes the last chapter from the manuscript is missing. As Susan digs deeper, her investigation begins to eerily parallel that of the manuscript’s fictional sleuth Atticus Pünd, played by Tim McMullan (Patrick Melrose, Foyle’s War). With a host of suspects, secret agendas, and a dark twist, Magpie Murders is a double mystery and the perfect cozy thriller for fall.
