One Book/One Glendale 2010: Los Angeles Noir

The Glendale Public Library is proud to present its 2010 Citywide Reading Event: Los Angeles Noir.

The book, edited by Denise Hamilton, takes Noir into the 21st century with an anthology of short stories, written by well-known local authors, and set in different Los Angeles neighborhoods. Each story reaches into the hardboiled roots of Noir, but with a modern twist and a diverse locale.

Visit the Library's One Book page for complete information on the book, the authors, and the events taking place throughout the month, and

The One Book/One Glendale...for younger readers title for 2010 is the graphic novel Amulet: The Stone Keeper, by Kazu Kibuishi. Visit the Glendale Public Library's Children's Room Special Programs page for complete information on events taking place in October and November.
