Unable to attend events and readings by your favorite Sisters and Misters in Crime? The SINC/LA Speakers Bureau brings them to your living room, library, or anywhere else your mobile device can go.

House Arrest is a virtual evening of readings by your favorite (or soon-to-be) authors of crime fiction, from cozy to hardboiled, with the occasional cocktail recipe, wine pairing, or lecture from a respected professional.

Hosted by the Los Angeles chapter of the Sisters in Crime, attendance is open to the public and  requires only a reservation and a computer, tablet, or mobile device that can run the Zoom application. Never used Zoom before? Check out their easy to follow device test here.
