Sisters in Crime 30th Anniversary Celebration
Come join the Upstate SC Chapter of Sisters in Crime as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of our National Sisters in Crime Organization with two entertaining presentations by Award-winning mystery writer, Marcia Talley:
Comic Relief: Or, What’s So Funny About Murder?
In the real world, murder and crime aren’t normally regarded as humorous. Crime is a tragedy. Someone has been victimized—robbed, raped, maimed, murdered. Treating death with humor without being tasteless can be a fine line to walk, but the authors Marcia highlights in this talk do it marvelously well using witty dialogue, wacky characterizations, and/or wild and crazy plots with surprise endings. They make us laugh, even in the face of death.
