Sisters in Crime held a "Booksellers and Librarians Solve Mysteries Every Day" event on Saturday, April 21, 2012 to thank librarians and booksellers for 25 years of support of the mystery genre - and to see how the book world looks from the perspective of people who match readers to books.

Barbara Fister found a corner of heaven at Once Upon a Crime in Minneapolis. She writes "it was so busy all day on Saturday, I don't know when Pat and Gary get any work done. Also, I wonder where they buy their shoes. My feet were sore at the end of the day!"
