When people weren’t able to attend events and readings by your favorite Sisters and Misters in Crime, the SINC/LA Speakers Bureau brought them to your living room, library, or anywhere else your mobile device went. House Arrest was 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 was open to the public and only required a reservation and a computer, tablet, or mobile device that can run the Zoom application.
