The Ontario Library Association will be holding its Super Conference at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 255 Front St. West. A bevy of Mesdames will be appearing during the Crime Writers of Canada event beginning at 1:00 p.m. Mesdames M. H. Callway, Lisa de Nikolits, Melodie Campbell and Rosemary McCracken will each have two minutes to tell the librarians about their most recently published books or novels in the works. Let’s hope many successful relationships ensue.
