In our second series with author and lecturer Abby Mendelson, The Future, Mr. Gittes, The Future: California Gothic/Crime, Part II, we move past the progenitors of the genre, and into the 1960s and beyond, we meet entire new generations of writers – women, African-Americans, Asians, pastiche artists, an entire generation of literary descendants. Put another way, in California, the beat always goes on! Readings will be emailed to participants. December 3rd, 10th and 17th. Register below for all lectures.
These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.
Registration is required. By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation. Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom.
