Noir At The Bar L.A. Presents: The Ladies Of Noir

It’s Ladies Night at Noir At The Bar L.A., folks! And we got five of the best noir writers to ever grace a page.

Megan Abbott: Author of QUEENPIN, THE SONG IS YOU, THE END OF EVERYTHING, and her latest DARE ME.

Denise Hamilton: Author of DAMAGE CONTROL, THE LAST EMBRACE, editor of the Akashic Los Angeles Noir anthologies.

Christa Faust: Author of MONEY SHOT, CHOKE HOLD and the hard-core, hard-boiled, lesbian private eye Butch Fatale in DOUBLE D DOUBLE CROSS.


Jeri Westerson: Author of the Crispin Guest medieval noir series with TROUBLED BONES, BLOOD LANCE, SHADOW OF THE ALCHEMIST.

Five of the most brilliant, talented, amazing authors have agreed to hang out at our little dive spot watering hole.

When: Sunday, August 5th 8:00PM – 10:00PM We give you an hour to get some booze and your asses in the seats and then we start the readings at 9:00. We’ll have an intermission partway through so you can do a couple rails off the bathroom sink, flirt with the bartender or get a hummer in the alley. Maybe all three if you’re fast.

Where: The Mandrake Bar – 2692 S La Cienega Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90034 between Venice and Washington Boulevards. East side of the street. Little white boxy place with a white neon martini glass glowing over the door.

Why: Because we fucking well can, that’s why.

People, we’ve had good times before. We’ve had amazing readers. But this is the best goddamn line-up of authors we have ever had. Each one of them is a huge talent and to have them all in one place at the same time is nothing short of goddamn legendary. If you miss this one I will mock you ceaselessly for missing it.

And bring money. ┬áThe drinks are cheap, sure, but Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach will be on hand to sell these ladies’ novels to you. And after hearing them read you are gonna want to snap ‘em up.

So make sure you’re there, people. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS ONE.

  • Damn. I’ll be driving home from a wedding, or I’d fly out there with the wife for an impromptu cruise up the coast in the fastest car Hertz will lend…
