One of the missions of our group is to provide our members with the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable people. Anyone from a successful writer speaking about our craft, to a retired policeman explaining the intricacies of patrolling our streets. Just in the last few months we have heard from an arson investigator, a retired sheriff, and a detective. Not only are their topics interesting and informative, we get to pick their brains with our often disturbing questions. As mystery writers, we can come up with some real doozies. This month we will be learning about the criminal justice system from a defense attorney.
Guests are welcome, so if you are in the area, come on by. Our meeting is Saturday, May 13th at the Library Station on North Kansas Expwy in Springfield MO. We have a business meeting at 10:00 am and then our speaker takes over at 11:00.
And who knows, maybe you will love our group so much, you will want to become a member. See you there!
