It will come as a great pleasure I’m sure for you to know that many mystery and suspense authors will be at the upcoming Fall for the Book Festival, to be held at George Mason University and other locations throughout the DMV area! (That’s DC-Maryland-Virginia, for those who don’t know.)
Here’s an announcement about the Sisters in Crime event that I found in my email!
Sisters in Crime: Mystery Writers Panel
Sunday, Sept. 25, 4 p.m., Sherwood Center, 3740 Old Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA
Three regional chapters of Sisters in Crime join forces to discuss—and celebrate!—their recent anthologies of mystery fiction: Chesapeake Crimes: Storm Warning (from the Chesapeake Chapter) and Virginia is for Mysteries, Volume 2 (from the Central and Southeastern Virginia Chapters).
