Triangle Sisters in Crime is a chapter of the international organization Sisters in Crime. We are authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, and librarians bound by our passion for the mystery genre and our support of mystery writers. We welcome Sisters and Brothers in Crime from anywhere who have an interest in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill mystery community of North Carolina.
History of Sisters in Crime
In 1986, women wrote 40% of the mysteries and got 15% of the reviews in the New York Times. Sisters in Crime was founded to "combat discrimination against women in the mystery field, to raise awareness of the contributions of female authors, and to promote the professional advancement of women who write mysteries."
Founders include best-selling author Sara Paretsky and Kate Mattes, owner of the former Cambridge literary fixture, Kate’s Mystery Books.
Today the national Sisters in Crime organization includes more than 3600 members in 50 chapters world-wide.
