cover of Whole She-Bang 3The 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.

If you couldn't make it to either of our book launches, don't despair! Our book(s) are available in print and ebook formats. Click here for details, or go to the anthology's own Facebook page!

Children's Book Bank - childhood literacy
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!

Defense attorney Jill Presser, will speak on the "law side" of mystery solving. Her practice is primarily devoted to trial and appellate criminal defence and she is often appointed amicus curiae by the Court of Appeal for Ontario in appeals involving unrepresented mentally disordered appellants. She will speak on what it is like to appear before the Supreme Court and to be a female lawyer in what was until recently very much a man's world. Ms. Presser is an adjunct professor at the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. She teaches, writes and speaks on a variety of topics in relation to criminal law, evidence, mental health, law and technology and women in the legal profession.
