Library Panels

Library Panels

MWA monthly library programs take place in libraries in our region, including the Mid-Manhattan Library in New York City, the Library of the Chathams in New Jersey, and Westport Library in Connecticut. Recent panels have discussed such writing topics as “50 Shades of Noir,” “Crime in Translation,” and “Pathways to Publication.”  These events offer a great opportunity for participants to make fans, network with librarians, and create word of mouth about their books.

 Would you like to bring a mystery event to your library?

Librarians in Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, take note: our chapter is committed to partnering with libraries. Many of our members are local authors available for panels and speaker programs at your library. They are knowledgeable about a broad range of topics, ranging from the history of mysteries, specific sub-genres, how to get started writing, and of course, their own books. Honorariums are appreciated, but our services are free. Contact us at
