Sisters in Crime/LA Member Appearances and News – May 2020

Even though we have “safer at home” order in place here in Los Angeles, that doesn’t mean our members aren’t staying active! Find out where our members in person this coming month (and subsequent months), or where you can find them – or their content – in media outlets such as podcasts or Zoom conferences! Or, maybe you have time on your hands for a good read and there’s something new you should know about!

We’ve consolidated all the “hot off the press”  news to know here – this list is updated throughout the month with last minute additions and changes, so keep checking back!
