Chat Salon: Sex Suspense and Sly Grog
23 October 2021 | 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm
Fancy some time to socialise at the end of the first day of our virtual conference? Then come to the Sex, Suspense & Sly Grog Chat Salon—hosted by Lindy Cameron.
Due to the lack of submissions, this Chat Salon will no longer include open readings. Instead, share your recommendations for favourite historical mystery and romance novels with Lindy and your fellow attendees. Or give your opinion on what makes a thriller ‘spine tingling’, a mystery ‘intriguing’, and a romance ‘steamy’. Lindy will ensure the conversation will flow and introduce you to our bartender who’ll show you how to mix one of our period inspired cocktails!
This chat salon will not be recorded.
