Sisters -- and Misters -- Solve Mysteries

All the fine print you could possibly need
Please join me this Saturday, April 21st from 12-4 p.m. at The Golden Bough in Macon, GA I'm excited to be part of an international event celebrating our community bookstores . . . and maybe even solving some mysteries.

I’ll be working as volunteer staffer at The Golden Bough for a “Booksellers and Librarians Solve Mysteries Every Day” celebration.

The event — produced by Sisters in Crime, an international organization founded to support the professional development of women writing crime fiction — is designed to thank librarians and booksellers for 25 years of support of the mystery genre.

On this day, a select group of Sisters in Crime member authors will be volunteering in bookstores and libraries in their hometowns — from Albany, New York, to Honolulu, Hawaii. In addition, SinC’s more than 3,000 members worldwide are gearing up to go into libraries and bookstores on that day to personally thank the booksellers and librarians they find working behind the counters and in the stacks.

While at The Golden Bough, I’ll be stocking books, assisting customers, making literary recommendations, plus . . . solving mysteries. So if you have one — a mystery, that is — bring it to the store, and I’ll give it my best shot. I won’t have any CSI tools (alas) but I will have a store full of written materials, a really smart bookseller, some crowd-sourced creativity a la Facebook, and several packs of tarot cards.

Look! Another mystery solved!
Just in case anyone brings me a very mysterious mystery.

The Golden Bough is located at 371 Cotton Street in Downtown Macon. The event lasts from 12 - 4 p.m. For more information about the store, you can call 478-744-2446 or visit the store’s website at www.goldenbough.com.

Sisters in Crime is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary year. The organization is made up of more than 3,000 members and 48 chapters worldwide—authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, librarians and others who love mysteries.
