Susie Brings Santa Cruz Noir to Bookshop Santa Cruz

June 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“Don’t hate us ‘cause we’re beautiful—we were made that way, like Venus rising off the foam with a brick in her hand. We can’t help it if you fall for it every time.”

Join ​me and twelve of my favorite authors​ at Bookshop Santa Cruz, ​to celebrate​ ​the hometown launch of Santa Cruz Noir. ​It’s the newest edition to Akashic Noir’s award-winning crime and mystery series.

“We live in what’s called paradise: where you can wake up in pool of blood, with the first pink rays of sunshine peeking out over our mountain range.”​

​Authors Elizabeth McKenzie, Jon Bailiff, Jessica Breheny, Margaret Elysia Garcia, Vinnie Hansen, Dillon Kaiser, Beth Lisick, Lou Mathews, Calvin McMillin, Liza Monroy, Tommy Moore, Peggy Townsend, and Jill Wolfson will share the ​most chilling, unapologetic, and, okay!— laugh-out-loud— ​details from their ​dark Santa Cruz ​stories​. ​​No tourists please! Bring your thoughts and questions, about what makes ​Coastal ​California​’s beauty​ so ripe for besmirching.

“​Santa Cruz is everything​ you ever dreamed— and everything you ever screamed— in one long drop you’ll not forget​.”

Party to follow at 515 Restaurant.
