Sisters-in-Crime Los Angeles Debuts New Anthology, ENTERTAINMENT TO DIE FOR

Sisters in Crime Los Angeles (SinC/LA) has released their new anthology, "Entertainment to Die For" with an introduction by award-winning novelist Sara Paretsky. Paretsky, a founding member of the national organization, said when she and other female authors were starting out 35 years ago, it would have been easier for a woman to win a Nobel Prize in Physics than an award from Mystery Writers of America. But today, Sisters in Crime is a national organization with a membership of more than 4,000 and 50 chapters worldwide.

"We live in a world where women's voices are at risk," says Paretsky, "but this collection says we are on center stage, and we aren't leaving."

Contributors to SinC/LA's "Entertainment to Die For" include a lineup of mystery writers from southern California, Arizona, and Hawaii, with short stories about Hollywood in the forties, the struggles of black filmmakers, vampires, and actors facing retirement. All stories were selected by blind competition.

Review: THE LONELY FEW at The Geffen Playhouse Photo
Zoe Sarnak’s score rocks. It sounds at times like Blondie or the B-52s (I like the B-52s so that comparison is not a dig here), but is so intrinsically connected to the emotional arch of the story being told that it soars like a musical theatre score should.
