Our August Meeting -- Firearms 101 with Gordon Rayner

If you're writing a mystery, chances are good a character is going to pull a gun at some point. And that is a moment every writer wants to get right.

Luckily for Low Country Sisters in Crime, we have an opportunity to learn how to do that.

Please join us on Saturday, August 8th from 10-12 noon at Southwest Chatham Public Library's Activity Room as we welcome Gordon Rayner, author and former DEA agent, who will share everything a mystery writer needs to know about guns, bullets, and all the trouble that characters can get into involving them. You don't want to miss this valuable Q&A session!
