Sizzling Summer Series!

Our Sizzling Summer Series is a collaboration between the Sisters in Crime Chapters in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and Northern California. In June, July, August and September, each chapter takes a turn hosting a zoom meeting for the four chapters. The combined audience builds a broader community and wider perspective.

Stay tuned for information on the September event.
