NoirCon 2016 is taking place in Philadelphia next month (Oct. 26 to 30) with a great lineup of noir-focused panels and events.
I’m excited to be a part of the opening night Noir at the Bar reading which takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Wed., Oct. 26, at the Pen & Pencil Club, 1522 Latimer St., Philadelphia.
The list of readers is outstanding: Vicki Hendricks, Jon McGoran, Kent Harrington, Lono Waiwaiole, Andrew Nette, S.A. Solomon, Joe Samuel Starnes, Jonathan Woods, Lanny Larcinese, and many more.
The rest of the conference includes panel discussions on topics like Forgotten Innovators of Suspense, 70s Noir Movies, and The Rough, Rural South of Larry Brown, plus events like a screening of Oren Shai’s film The Frontier, Meredith Anthony’s play Murder on the Main Line, and a keynote address by Woody Haut.
I’ve been to three previous NoirCons, and they’re always a great time. Organizers Lou Boxer and Deen Kogan do an outstanding job.
Join us if you can!
