Welcome to the Triangle, North Carolina Chapter of Sisters In Crime
The mission of Sisters in Crime is to promote the ongoing advancement, recognition and professional development of women crime writers.
Saturday, December 10th 2:00 PM EST via Zoom - Caroline Crampton will present "The Rules of Golden Age Detective Fiction." Join us for an informative discussion about the "rules" invented and followed by detective novelists in the 1920s such as Dorothy L. Sayers, Anthony Berkeley, Agatha Christie and others. From the doctrine of fair play to a prohibition on excessive secret passages, these ideas have had an outsize influence on how crime fiction plots are constructed today.
