LAUNCHED IN NOVEMBER!
The Toronto Chapter of Sisters in Crime is thrilled to announce the launch of our third mystery anthology! We had a fantastic time at both our launches. The authors read excerpts from their stories, just enough to intrigue us and leave us wanting more. (Hint: buy the book and find out how it ends!) There was cake/wine/fruit/cheese/coffee and a book swap as well. Lots of great energy, signings, and socializing.
A little-known fact about our anthologies: 50% of our net proceeds goes to the Children's Book Bank. So, in addition to getting a diverse sampler of mystery authors to try out, you are also supporting a worthy cause: childhood literacy!

The Suspense is Killing Me!: This month we will be hosting a panel of suspense writers (and a reader!) to discuss the ins and outs of the genre. Expect a lot of author recommendations as we have a very opinionated crowd of avid and discerning readers! Panelists: DJ McIntosh (The Babylon Trilogy), Steve Shrott (Dead Men Don't Get Married), and Jennifer Soosar (Parent Teacher Association). The moderator is short story author Lynn Murphy.

We meet on the THIRD THURSDAY every month. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. in Room 200 at the Toronto Public Library, Northern District Branch, 40 Orchard View Blvd (just a block north of Eglinton subway station on Yonge, or half a block west of Yonge). Take the elevator in the lobby to the second floor. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please note: a $5 fee is charged for non-members.
Interested in supper before the meeting? Starting around 5:30 p.m. (and a few will likely arrive earlier) some of us will get together for dinner at The Pickel Barrel, 2300 Yonge St. It’s just around the corner from the library. There is a wide variety of food, salads, and healthy options, and the prices are very reasonable.
