We’ll be reaching out to our audience with an update about Book and Author Society soon.

Authors Tracy Gardner (a.k.a. Jess Sinclair) and Darci Hannah discuss their cozy mysteries, the writing process, and other topics along with a Q&A from our audience. We also had two special announcements: the return of the in-person luncheon (at a new venue) and a new grant opportunity for libraries.

You can purchase books from these authors from Schuler Books.
