Santa Fe Noir Author Event
Join the editor and contributing authors of the latest anthology SANTA FE NOIR, as they expand the lens on The City Different through their stories, each of which are set in a distinct neighborhood or location within town.
Including a screening of “THE THIRD MAN”, after the discussion.
From the introduction by editor Ariel Gore:
The stories in this collection reflect a fundamental truth about this city: history depends on who’s telling it. Too often the story of Santa Fe has been told only by the conquerors and the tourism PR firms. In Santa Fe Noir, you will hear the voices of the others: locals and Native people, unemployed veterans and queer transplants, the homeless and the paroled-to-here. When I asked the contributors you’ll read in these pages if they had a Santa Fe story to tell, they invariably shrugged and said something to the effect of, “Oh, I’ve got a story all right. But it might not fit the image of Santa Fe you’re looking for.”
I said, “Try me.” They came back with the stories that never make the glossy tour brochures: the working class and the underground, the decolonized and the ever-haunted; the Santa Fe only we know . . . Conquered and reconquered, colonized and commodified, Santa Fe understands—from historical genocide to the murders of family members—the intimacy of violence.
“The book’s diverse group of writers will provide readers with unexpected perspectives on this centuries-old city and its people.” —Publishers Weekly
Participants will include: Ariel Gore, Darryl Lorenzo Wellington, Elizabeth Lee, Katie Johnson, and James Reich.
Set in postwar Vienna, Austria, “The Third Man” stars Joseph Cotten as Holly Martins, a writer of pulp Westerns, who arrives penniless as a guest of his childhood chum Harry Lime (Orson Welles), only to find him dead. Martins develops a conspiracy theory after learning of a “third man” present at the time of Harry’s death, running into interference from British officer Maj. Calloway (Trevor Howard) and falling head-over-heels for Harry’s grief-stricken lover, Anna (Alida Valli).
