Virtual Noir at the Bar

One of the great things about Noir at the Bar is how it continually develops new wrinkles and variations.  This week, it will be taking on a new form, thanks to Alex Segura and an idea he had: this Friday, April 3rd, at 7 PM, will see the first Virtual Noir at the Bar take place, with a great lineup of readers.

It's an event aimed at helping a great independent bookstore in Queens, New York, the Kew & Willow, a bookstore that has hosted Noir at the Bar events numerous times.  The owners of the store are great and always carry small and indie press authors as well as bestsellers and large press authors.  I've been there to do readings, attend readings, and, of course, just to browse, and it's pretty much everything a local, independent bookstore should be. With the store closed due to the global pandemic, this virtual Noir at the Bar is a way to support a place that truly deserves that support. And maybe if you hear something you like during the readings, you'll be tempted to order the book directly from Kew & Willow.  If you do, they'll ship it to you for only $1 in additional shipping.

So that's Friday, April 3 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. You can watch from your house, wherever you are in quarantine, and have a drink and enjoy a bunch of darkly entertaining stories.

The link to RSVP to the livestream is here:

Hope you can make it.

I hope someone is going to tell us how to link to it. I am registered but have no idea how to do this.
