EVENT ALERT: LIVE from the NYPL, featuring Etgar Keret, Assaf Gavron, Salar Abdoh, & Gina B. Nahai!

Attention New York! Join us and LIVE from the NYPL on Wednesday, November 5, for a joint launch event for Tehran Noir and Tel Aviv Noir!

TehranNoir-current          TelAvivNoir-current

Each installment of our award-winning Noir Series features a collection of short stories set in a distinct neighborhood or city. Tehran Noir and Tel Aviv Noir are the latest books in the series, and they’re full of compelling stories that explore these cities through an illuminating range of perspectives and voices. Two authors from each of the anthologies—Etgar Keret, Gina B. Nahai, Salar Abdoh, and Assaf Gavron—come together to share stories of life in their native locales, in a conversation moderated by Rick Moody (author of The Ice Storm).

The event starts at 7:00 PM at NYPL’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Tickets are $25 General Admission and $15 for Friends of LIVE from the NYPL; click here to purchase.
