City Paper is not for tourists
If you haven’t quite finished nerding out on George Pelecanos, you have a couple more options in addition to his readings this week. Today Akashic Books (founded by Johnny Temple, frontman of the onetime D.C. band Girls Against Boys) announced a pair of readings attached to D.C. Noir 2, a collection of classic District-set fiction. Pelecanos edited the book, and he’ll appear at a pair of readings for it. The first is September 9 at Busboys and Poets, where he’ll be joined by Marita Golden and other contributors. The second is September 23 at the Friendship Heights Borders; other guests for that reading haven’t been announced.
