Kensington CozyClub: Where Murder Lives!


Kensington CozyClub Mini-Cons are a series of annual multi-author reader parties held across the United States to celebrate cozy mysteries and the people who love them.


Four big events are held every year in rotating cities within each region – Northeast, South, West and Midwest – with anywhere from 10 to 30 authors per event. Readers are invited to come meet the authors, get autographed books and learn more about the genre while enjoying fabulous goodies, refreshments from local businesses, fun swag and prizes. With promotional support from regional chapters of Sisters in Crime, The Mystery Writers of America and Booklist, we’re also proud to partner with local shops whose products and services share traits popular among a cozy reader audience – connecting the cozy community with local businesses they’ll love.
