The Chesapeake Chapter usually holds a monthly meeting with a speaker on the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a holiday, venue scheduling, or convention conflict. Occasionally, the chapter offers a field trip or special event instead of a meeting. Upcoming meeting dates are listed below. You will receive an email notice in advance of the meeting, along with a registration form and menu choice (if applicable). To reserve your place at a meeting, follow the directions as stated on the email notice or on the meeting’s announcement on this website.

MYSTERY AUTHOR EXTRAVAGANZA
It’s time for our annual Mystery Author Extravaganzas, one in November and one in December, with chapter authors speaking at each event about their new crime/mystery books and short stories published this year! This invitation is for the November event, which is being held online and run by the Miller Branch of the Howard County (Maryland) Public Library on Saturday, November 6th, starting at 1 p.m.
The fun should run for about an hour, and you won’t want to miss it. We’ll have 15 Chessie Chapter authors enthralling you with their new books and stories, and you’ll be able to click over to a webpage from bookstore Mystery Loves Company to buy them. Books make great gifts for others as well as yourself. So come on down and support your chapter authors at our annual holiday-season kick-off event!
Which authors will be speaking? Meri Allen/Shari Randall, Donna Andrews, Barb Goffman, Debra Goldstein, Sherry Harris, Smita Harish Jain, Libby Klein, Debbi Mack, Sujata Massey, Eileen McIntire, Alan Orloff, Lee Anne Post/Ginny Fite, Colleen Shogan, Heather Weidner, and Cathy Wiley.
The meeting is free and open to the public, but you have to register. When you do, you’ll receive an immediate registration confirmation with a link to join the event. To register, click here: https://howardcounty.librarycalendar.com/events/sisters-crime-mystery-lovers-extravaganza-online
Can’t attend? On Saturday, December 11th, 16 chapter authors—all different from our November speakers—will be participating in an online extravaganza sponsored by the Reston (Virginia) Regional Library. More details on that event coming in November. We hope to see you online!
