Speaking of Noir
Saturday, June 18, 2011
Reading and performance, starting at 8 pm
‘Speaking of…’ an arts series based on Pittsburgh’s Northshore is partnering with Akashic Books, publishers of the legendary ‘Noir’ series, to present a night of mystery stories, dubstep/ballet/break dance fusion, soul and jazz, and the spoken word: ‘Speaking of…Noir!’ June 18th at 8:00 PM at the New Hazlett Theater.
Now Pittsburgh can takes it's rightful place along cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Istanbul: we have our own collection of crime stories in Pittsburgh Noir, edited by Edgar-nominee Kathleen George.
Fourteen stories by a distinguished group of writers showcase the dark underside and criminal tendencies of America's Most Livable City.
Authors include: Stewart O'Nan, Hilary Masters, Lila Shaara, Rebecca Drake, Kathleen George, Paul Lee, K. C. Constantine, Nancy Martin, Kathryn Miller Haines, Terrance Hayes, Carlos Delgado, Aubrey Hirsch, Tom Lipinski, and Reginald McKnight.
Readers include Terrance Hayes and two Cave Canem fellows. Presale tickets available at http://www.showclix.com/event/SpeakingOfNoir for $8, and available for $10 at the door.
