|Sisters in Crime Barb Goffman, Sherry Harris, Shari Randall, Ellen Crosby, and Donna Andrews.|
All of these elements became reality Saturday night as the Fairfax Library Foundation hosted its Let Loose In the Library fundraiser at the Burke Center Library in Burke, Virginia. Guests enjoyed all of the above and at the same time raised funds to support library initiatives such as the Summer Reading Program for children, ebooks, Fall for the Book's Fairfax Prize, and the Changing Lives Through Literature book discussion program, an alternative to formal court action for juvenile offenders.
The Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime was well represented. Ellen Crosby signed copies of her exciting new thriller, Multiple Exposure; Donna Andrews showcased her new Meg Langslow mystery, Duck the Halls; Sherry Harris enticed us with news of her upcoming Yard Sale series; and Barb Goffman had the perfect reading for the upcoming Halloween holiday: her Don't Get Mad, Get Even collection and the new anthology, All Hallow's Evil. I got in on the action, signing the Chesapeake Crimes: This Job Is Murder anthology.
A wonderful time thanks to these lovely ladies who love libraries, too.
