Noir at the Bar

When: Thu., Dec. 7, 7-9 p.m. 2017

The war on Christmas is heating up as local crime author extraordinaire (and occasional INDY contributor) Eryk Pruitt—who's been on the lam touring his latest Southern thriller, What We Reckon—returns to inject immoral filth into a pious season with this Yuletide edition of Noir at the Bar, a recurring crime-author convention at 106 Main. Seven crime and sci-fi authors will cram into the shadowy tavern to read, sell and sign books, and get blotto while welcoming their wayward ringleader home. Expect holiday-themed stories from Katy Munger, Warren Moore, J.D. Allen, S.A. Cosby, David Terrenoire, Nik Patrick, and Pruitt. "I've traveled around the country doing these Noir at the Bar events in other cities," Pruitt says. "However, there's nothing like reading in front of your home crowd. It's a real treat to introduce Durham to a couple of writers from out of town, as well as some right here in our own backyard." Of course it is; that's where the bodies are buried. —Brian Howe
