Our meetings are online (Zoom) for now, but as conditions improve, we're easing into some in-person meetings. Meanwhile, you can join our meeetings from anywhere. That's been a great benefit of this difficult time--enjoying offerings from many other Sisters in Crime chapters nationwide.

We've got a great line-up this year. We hope you'll join us!

Medical Practices in Historic London
Dr. Noel Kerr

If you write historical fiction, you'll want to hear Dr. Noel Kerr's talk on historical medical practices. Dr. Kerr leads a yearly trip to London affectionately called “The Medical Mystery Tour,” which visits historic sites in the United Kingdom to show students the medical practices in place through history—and the evolution of medical technology from the blood-letting-era and beyond. When she’s not teaching, Professor Kerr works as a consultant on medical practices for authors and screenwriters.
