teen springtime

It’s getting springy around the campus! Come enjoy the beauty of our library!

Since it’s spring, it’s also May, which is Mystery Month! On Saturday, we will have our first Mystery Month event! Members of the Speed City chapter of Sister in Crime will be at the library in the Close Community Room on Saturday, May 7, from 1-3 p.m. They are going to talk about their writing process and their stories of murder, mystery, and mayhem in their recent anthology (which will be available for sale)! You can register at 925-2414 ext. 120 or reference@epl.lib.in.us. Refreshments will be served.

Sisters in Crime is a national organization founded nearly 30 years ago to address inequalities regarding book reviews for woman mystery writers. Sisters in Crime is a service organization committed to addressing issues of concern to everybody who writes, or is a fan of, the true crime and crime fiction genres. The Speed City Chapter of Sisters in Crime is open to individuals throughout Indiana. Other anthologies they have published include “Racing Can be Murder,” “Bedlam at the Brickyard,” and “Hoosier Hoops and Hijinks.” For more information, go to their website at http://www.speedcitysistersincrime.org.

About Jenny

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
