Sisters in Crime discuss Noir Fiction at Burbank's Buena Vista Branch Library

A panel on noir fiction featuring members of the Los Angeles branch of Sisters in Crime was held on October 8, 2014 at Burbank's Buena Vista Branch Library. Topics of discussion included the importance of tiny filler newspaper stories in inspiring fictional plots, whether contemporary writing can truly be noir, and the topics too grim for even the hardest-boiled fiction.  From left to right are moderator Craig Faustus Buck (Psycho Logic)  and mystery scribes Gary Phillips (The Essex Man: 10 Seconds to Death),  Kim Cooper (The Kept Girl) and Christopher J. Lynch (One Eyed Jack).
