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!

We are so exciting to have award-winning author Maureen Jennings come to talk about her latest book (out in November). "It's a bit of an experiment. I'm pushing the boundaries of genre fiction a little." Called, Let Darkness Bury the Dead, she advances Detective Murdoch to 1917 and the book deals with his relationship with his son, Jack who had returned from the trenches, apparently damaged in mind and body.

We meet on the THIRD THURSDAY every month. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. in Room 200 at the Toronto Public Library, Northern District Branch, 40 Orchard View Blvd (just a block north of Eglinton subway station on Yonge, or half a block west of Yonge). Take the elevator in the lobby to the second floor. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please note: a $5 fee is charged for non-members.

Join Us!

Interested in supper before the meeting? Starting around 5:30 p.m. (and a few will likely arrive earlier) some of us will get together for dinner at Ho Su Bistro, 2352 Yonge St. It’s just around the corner from the library. There is a wide variety of food in the pan-Asian style, salads, and healthy options, and the prices are very reasonable.
