Nights of Noir – Vera Caspary’s LAURA

November 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CST
$25.00

Welcome to the world of Noir, where the streets are dark with something more than night. Join us for a literary joyride through Texas and the West, down Park Avenue, and into the frigid Nordic landscape, a journey where the desperate and duplicitous encounter corruption, betrayal, and death - and no one comes out unscathed. Explore four timeless hardboiled classics: Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest, which started it all; Laura, The Getaway, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
