The Tandem Reading Series continues at
The Cell Theatre
Variety in crime--an evening of fiction, fact, poetry and high-risk mortality.
SJ Rozan reads from her latest novel, THE SHANGHAI MOON, a detective story set partly in modern day New York and partly in the Jewish ghetto in Shanghai during WWII.
Harold Schechter reads from his true crime book, THE DEVIL'S GENTLEMAN: PRIVILEGE, POISON, AND THE TRIAL THAT USHERED IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
Seamus Scanlon (with the lilting accent) will be reading a brilliant short story set in Ireland called THE ROCKY ROAD TO DUBLIN.
Jason Starr will bridge the gap of between New York and Ireland and read from SLIDE, one of the three books he co-wrote with Ken Bruen for Hard Case Crime.
Gerald So will read crime poetry (a rare and wonderful breed), including two of his poems from THE LINEUP: POEMS ON CRIME NO. 1.
