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 our program at 11:15 am Eastern.

Each month we will be on Zoom and, whenever possible, we'll also be in person at the Boardroom at the Bethlehem Library 451 Delaware Ave, Delmar, NY 12054. Check the schedule under EVENTS since we will not be in-person every month.

Our programs are always crime-related - either a talk by a mystery author or an expert who can be a resource for mystery writers.

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.
