Puget Sound Sisters in Crime is a chapter of Sisters in Crime.  We are a community of authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, and librarians brought together by our passion for the mystery genre and our support of women who write mysteries. We welcome Sisters and Misters from anywhere who have a professional or personal interest in crime and mystery writing across the Greater Seattle and Puget Sound region.

Our chapter meets on the second Thursday of the month (except July, August, and December), from 7:00–8:30 pm. See our full 2018 schedule. We meet in the Stadler Room at Third Place Commons, Lake Forest Park Town Center, Lake Forest Park, Washington 98155. Visitors are welcome – and we’d love to have you join us!
