Event Details

July 22: Noir City Smackdown (or Beat LA!)sf noir
Join Green Apple Books when we take our Noir on the road, raise a glass to the history of mystery in San Francisco, and let those rapscallions from LaLa land know which collection of tales is the hardest-boiled.

That’s right you’ze mugs, on Thursday, July 22nd Green Apple will be hosting a Noir City Smackdown, with the editors of San Francisco Noir 1 and 2 (Peter Maravelis) and Los Angeles Noir 1 and 2 (Denise Hamilton), along with a couple of very special guests certain to tip the scales in The City’s favor: Eddie Muller (The Czar of Noir) and Cara Black (bestselling author of the Aimee Leduc Investigation series).
la noir
This four person panel presents a unique opportunity for readers of all types to become exposed to the tightest prose this side of a roscoe; and if you’re already an aficionado of the tough stuff then you know just how good this line-up is…and I don’t mean like ‘the usual suspects.

This FREE event will be held in the oh-so-noir subterranean event space of Cantina, right next to the Rex Hotel. It’s a bar (‘natch), so leave the kids at home when you help Dashiell Hammett whup-up on Raymond Chandler.

Noir Night at Cantina (580 Sutter @ Mason)
Thursday, July 22 from 7:00 – 8:30PM
 with Peter Maravelis, Denise Hamilton, Eddie Muller and Cara Black
