Any conversations about literature in the “noir” genre are well-suited for the “Poe Room” (named after the legendary Edgar Allan Poe) at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore.
Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, the editor of “Singapore Noir,” discussed her latest book. It’s a collection of stories by some of Singapore’s “best, contemporary writers,” written in the “noir” tradition.
She then joined in a book talk with Bmore’s own Rafael Alvarez.
He’s an author/screenwriter, and also a contributor to “Baltimore Noir” as well as Baltimore Post-Examiner. The duo were introduced by Greg Sesek, coordinator for the Adult Programs at the Pratt. The book discussion was followed by a lively Q & A with the audience.
Tan is an author in her own right and a former staff reporter for the The Baltimore Sun. Alvarez’s latest offering from his very busy muse is the popular – “Tales from the Holy Land.”
