 SISTERS IN CRIME’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY!
A Members Only Celebration - July 26

For more than a quarter century, Sisters in Crime has been inspiring and promoting sister crime writers—and misters, too. It’s been a great ride and an impressive success. We celebrated with a champagne luncheon at the home of our Secretary, Claire Applewhite on Wednesday, July 26, 2017.

       

 

 Champagne Toast to Sisters in Crime--Thirty Great Years and More to Come!

Their long-running TV series is finished up a 7 seaon run last year--and will be on various channels in reruns for the foreseable future..  I'd be happy to save you a seat--perhaps talk it over over a libation afterwards.  -Fedora
