Long Island Sisters in Crime

assnnav1_01-1Welcome to the blog of Long Island Sisters in Crime. We are a chapter of the National Sisters in Crime. Today is a special day for us, as we will be presenting the Port Jefferson Free Library with a $1,000 Sisters in Crime “We Love Libraries!” Award. The Port Jefferson Free Library is the recipient of the December 2012 award. Each month, the national Sisters in Crime (or as we affectionately call it, SinC – pronounced “sink”), awards a U.S. library. For more information on how a library can enter the random drawing, visit here.

Long Island Sisters in Crime are on Twitter @LI_SinC and on Facebook.

If you are in the area of Port Jefferson today, stop by the Port Jefferson Free Library. Six of our members will be in attendance to give brief presentations about their writing and will sign books:  Bernadine Fagen, Linda Marie Frank, Charlene Knadle (CB Knadle), Marilyn Levinson, Kathleen A. Ryan, and Toby Speed.

    Our afternoon at the Pt. Jeff Library proved to be a terrific experience. Charlene and I talked about Sisters in Crime and the history of our LI chapter. Hard to believe we’re not even three years old! Then Bernardine, Linda, Charlene, Cathy, Toby and I discussed our books and other writerly topics. Afterwards, we chatted with patrons, library people, and library board members over punch and cookies. A good time was had by all.

    I happened to run into Lauren at the Sachem Library. I told her what a great afternoon we’d had at the Port Jeff Library. We discussed the possibility of LISinC coming to talk at the Sachem Library in a panel presentation. I think that would be wonderful. Any thoughts on this?

    Good idea, Marilyn. Though the Sisters in Crime has been active nationally for 26 years, our chapter is the first on Long Island–thanks to Marilyn and Bernadine, who founded it almost three years ago. Even libraries are just getting to know we exist. Just after Joe Giacalone’s talk ended July 27 and people were leaving, a librarian came into the room to ask what had just transpired in the room. I gave her a copy of the Half Hollow Hills Newspaper that contains an article about us by Jacqueline Birzon.
