Edgar, Agatha, Anthony & Macavity-award winner Margaret Maron will be our featured speaker at our December 5 meeting!
Thanks to the amazing generosity and ingenuity of National Sisters in Crime, specifically Hank Phillippi Ryan et al, a National Sisters in Crime Speakers Bureau was created in order that chapters like ours might have the benefit of awesome and amazing authors come speak to us–at no cost to our club! This is very exciting news and an awesome way to see out what so far has been a fabulous year for us.
I’ll be needing a few volunteers for that day as Margaret will need to be picked up at the Amtrak station here in Jax. We’ll definitely plan a lunch with her and a few other activities to fill her day before we take her back to the train station later that evening. (This is your chance to get all the advice and wisdom–not to mention anecdotes–that you can only get from a best-selling author at this level.)
Please be thinking of what you’d like Margaret to speak about at our meeting. She’s open to doing a craft session or just talk informally about whatever we’d like.
