Athenaeum Mystery Book Club: The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett
August 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
A coolly glittering gem of detective fiction that has haunted three generations of readers, from one of the greatest mystery writers of all time.
A treasure worth killing for. Sam Spade, a slightly shopworn private eye with his own solitary code of ethics. A perfumed grafter named Joel Cairo, a fat man name Gutman, and Brigid O’Shaughnessy, a beautiful and treacherous woman whose loyalties shift at the drop of a dime. These are the ingredients of Dashiell Hammett’s iconic, influential, and beloved The Maltese Falcon.
The Athenaeum Mystery Book Club is free and open to the public, registration required. It is facilitated by Athenaeum Resource Description and Access Librarian Lois Reibach. The group meets the first Thursday of the month at 3:00pm.
