November 19 Mystery Writing Group Meeting

The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren WilligNovember’s book is The Mischief of the Mistletoe, a book in Lauren Willig‘s much-loved Pink Carnation series.

Arabella Dempsey’s dear friend Jane Austen warned her against teaching. But Miss Climpson’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies seems the perfect place for Arabella to claim her independence while keeping an eye on her younger sisters nearby. Just before Christmas, she accepts a position at the quiet girls’ school in Bath, expecting to face nothing more exciting than conducting the annual Christmas recital. She hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats and international spies…

Will Arabella and her friends run into trouble? Border Crimes member Ann Friedman will lead a discussion on this historical mystery romance.

If you’re a dues-paying member of Sisters in Crime, join us for this fun and educational discussion on Saturday, November 19, 10:30 a.m. at Winstead’s, 8036 Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park, Kansas.

November Meeting: The Benefits of Writing Conferences (Panel Discussion)

“Writing can be a solitary pursuit.” “Writing is a lonely business.” “Writers live in their heads.” We’ve all heard some version of this idea. But the truth is that writers need to reach out to other writers, members of the publishing industry, and other experts in order to improve their craft and learn how to maneuver their stories from a manuscript to a product in the marketplace.

Writing conferences big and small can help writers at any stage in their careers. But how do you pick the conference that’s right for you (and your budget)? Border Crimes members Ann Friedman, Jack Kline, and Joyce Brown will talk about the writing conferences they recently attended and how they benefited. Border Crimes member Lisa Harkrader will moderate.

Join us on November 5 at 11 a.m. for this program, which is free and open to the public! This meeting will be held at the Antioch Branch of the Johnson County Library, 8700 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Merriam, Kansas.
