Literary Noir Night at Mechanics Library

The Mechanics Institute Library is a unique institution in downtown San Francisco — they own their own late-Victorian office building just off Montgomery and Market Streets, and operate on two floors of it; you pay to join the library, but then you have access to their attractive facilities six days a week — which in the last several years has established a presence on the literary scene, offering readings, films and other events. It’s a great example of a 19th century institution which is successfully updating itself to the 21st.

On Thursday the 24th they’re having their 3rd annual Literary Noir Night, featuring author Peter Plate, special guests Craig Clevenger, Joe Gores, Don Herron, and Eddie Muller.

Here’s an interview with Plate by Michelle Tea in the Bay Guardian from 2004, and a review in the Chronicle, from the same year, of his novel Fogtown.
