About Us

We are the Mavens of Mayhem, the Upper Hudson Chapter of Sisters in Crime. Our meetings are on the third Saturday of the month, beginning at 10:30 am for members only business, then opening to the public for programming at 11.30 am.

Typically we meet at the Bethlehem Public Library (see the blog for the location of the next meeting) and we have a mystery/crime related program, talk about writing nuts and bolts and have a mystery discussion group. "Virtual" Online meetings are currently being held until further notice.

The cost to join is $25. You must also be a member of the national network of Sisters of Crime. There are several membership options on their website.

The Upper Hudson chapter welcomes everyone, from all regions of the U.S. and the world, but our primary membership is drawn from upstate New York, particularly Albany.

The northern portion of the Hudson River valley in Upstate New York, is generally that region extending from the first town below the headwaters of the Hudson River at North River to the last substantive waterfall preventing the passage of vessels at Fort Edward. Downstream from Fort Edward, northbound boat traffic exits the Hudson River onto the Champlain Canal.

The largest population center in the Upper Hudson River Valley is that of Glens Falls. Other towns include North Creek, Hadley, Lake Luzerne, Corinth, and Hudson Falls. The region is characterized by a series of small glens and valleys surrounded by the Adirondack Mountains on all sides. At Corinth the river deepens and widens as it approaches the "big bend" where Interstate 87 crosses near Glens Falls.
