Next SinC/LA Chapter Meeting

Sunday, September 3

FEATURED SPEAKER: Jonathan Kirsch— “Ten Things Every Mystery Writer Needs to Know About Publishing Law.”

Jonathan Kirsch is an intellectual property lawyer who specializes in publishing matters. He is general counsel of the Independent Book Publisher Association and a member of the adjunct faculty of the New York University’s Center for Publishing. Jonathan is a longtime book reviewer and the author of 13 books, including two on publishing law, two mystery novels, and, most recently, “The Short, Strange Life of Herschel Grynszpan: A Boy Avenger, a Nazi Diplomat and a Murder in Paris” (Liveright).


FEATURED READER: Nancy Cole Silverman

Nancy Cole Silverman credits the fact both she and Edgar Allen Poe share the same birthday, along with her twenty-five years in talk radio, for helping her to develop an ear for storytelling. After writing everything from commercial copy to news, Silverman retired from radio in 2001 to write fiction. She’ll be reading from her fourth Carol Childs novel, ROOM FOR DOUBT. “When radio reporter Carol Childs is called to a crime scene in the Hollywood Hills at five-thirty in the morning, she’s convinced it must be a publicity stunt to promote a new movie. That is, until she sees the body hanging from the center of the Hollywood sign.”


We’re proud of the accomplishments of our members and want to spread the word!
