Noir at the Bar featuring Michael Koryta, George Weir, and Jesse Sublett.
at Opal Divine’s (700 w. 6th)

The only thing most crime fiction fans love as much as books is drinking, so it only makes sense that someone would combine both. Started in Philadelphia a few years, Noir At The Bar has made its way across the country from St, Louis to LA. MysteryPeople hosted the first ever Noir At The Bar in Austin, and we’re excited to do it again at Opal Divine’s.

We have three great authors on deck tonight:

Michael Koryta is the author of seven previous novels, including Envy the Night, which won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for best mystery/thriller, and the Lincoln Perry series, which has earned nominations for the Edgar, Shamus, and Quill awards and won the Great Lakes Book Award. He’ll be reading from his new book, The Prophet.

George Weir is a Native Texan living with his wife, Sallie, in Austin who writes Texas-based crime and mystery novels. His first published work was “Duckweed”, a contribution to Lone Star Noir, Akashic Books, 2010. He is the author of the Bill Travis mystery series. His forthcoming Long Fall From Heaven, with Milton T. Burton, will be in print in March 2013.

Austin musician and author Jesse Sublett will read his work featured in Lone Star Noir. Jesse will also entertain us with some of his tunes.

So come out to Opal’s (700 West 6th St.) at 7PM and help us with our new tradition – Austin’s Noir at the Bar.

  1. When is Duane Swierzynsci returning to Book People?

      We do not have a date for Duane yet, but I’m sure he’ll come back through at some point. Keep checking back with us. You can also join our e-newsletter list to stay up to date, if that helps.

  2. Are you planning on having a Reed Farrel Coleman event this year?

      Yes! We’ll be hosting him on November 13 as part of our regular Noir at the Bar series at Opal Divine’s, down the street from the store. We’ll have info up about it soon.

  3. Thanks for making me aware of Frank Bill. Just read his two books and while not for everyone, I truly enjoyed them.
