I’ll be speaking on a panel called “Vegas Noir,” along with Jarret Keene, Tod Goldberg, and Todd James Pierce. Steve Grogan will moderate. We’ll be discussing the book Las Vegas Noir and the topic of the “Great American Las Vegas Novel.” Who will write it? What will it be about?
My panel is Friday, November 7 at 3:30 p.m. at the Fifth Street School in Downtown Las Vegas.
I am very excited about this event, as well as Jarret’s “Operation Desert Word Storm” that will make Vegas’ First Friday Art Walk more literary than ever–lots of performers and warrior poets to watch and love.
We’ll get a chance to dance around Downtown Las Vegas and have a Noir-inspired drink or two.
I would be beyond delighted to see everyone at the Noir panel.
Lots of love and hope,
