September Meeting Canceled
All of us at Mystery Writers of America, Southwest Chapter
have been deeply saddened by the unprecedented flooding
that has affected Houston and the surrounding areas.
Due to the current state of emergency in Houston, and in
consideration of the many Houstonians and others who will
need time to rebuild and recover, we have decided to cancel
our Houston lunch meeting that was scheduled for Saturday,
BUT WAIT! THERE IS GOOD NEWS!
To compensate for not meeting with us in person,
our scheduled speaker, Arianne "Tex" Thompson,
has generously offered the following:
