Author Amy Stewart
Monday, November 9, 2020
Virtual Meeting via Zoom (Link will be sent to members via email)

Program Chair: Polly Anderson

Seven years ago, Amy Stewart stumbled across a newspaper article about a forgotten woman in law enforcement: Constance Kopp. She was immediately enchanted by her story, and that of her two sisters. For well over a decade, their exploits as crime-fighters and detectives in north Jersey made newspapers nationwide – but they'd been entirely forgotten. She knew immediately that she had to tell their story. The fifth book in Amy’s series is about to be released. In this program, Amy pays tribute to these extraordinary women and gives us the chance to love them as much as she does.
