SMYRNA

‘Lunch Can Be Murder’

If you long ago exhausted your supply of Agatha Christie, Sue Grafton and Patricia Cornwell novels; listened to every possible true crime podcast; and watched each “Making a Murderer” episode endless times, then the Sisters in Crime is the group for you. The Atlanta chapter of the international organization holds its regular meetings on the second Saturday of each month, but on Feb. 18, it is hosting a lunch to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Emmy Award-winning reporter and author Hank Phillippi Ryan will speak during a three-course lunch. Afterward, pick up a raffle ticket and meet local crime and mystery authors who will showcase their novels.

11 a.m.-2 p.m. Feb. 18. $19. Brawner Hall, 3180 Atlanta Road, Smyrna. 678-631-5545, sincatlanta.com.

February is National Bird Feeding Month, and the Roswell Visitors Bureau is doing its part to encourage all things ornithology.

Oscar-Nominated Short Films Marathon

Everyone is talking great performances in films such as “Hidden Figures” and “La La Land,” but if you really want to explore all the Oscar options, the Lefont Film Society has you covered.

On Feb. 18, they will watch 10 Oscar-nominated short films — all of them included in the live action or animated categories. The marathon will last approximately three hours. If you haven’t had your cinematic fill after that, consider joining the group on the following Monday to view the films nominated in the Best Documentary Short Subject category.
