Back by popular demand: the Mystery Trivia Contest! Are you still kicking yourself for missing last year's Sherlock Holmes Trivia Contest? Then get your thinking caps ready! Our June 14 meeting will feature a return of the trivia contest—and this time, we're expanding it to include not just Sherlockian trivia but also questions on Christie, Chandler, and the greater world of crime fiction.

There will be prizes for the winners! Door prizes! Booby prizes! And a lot of fun for all. But the time is short—so RSVP today for the second annual Mid-Atlantic Trivia Meltdown. Please join us … Tuesday, June 14th
