Dashiell Hammett in San Francisco
Our community partner for this event is the California Historical Society.
A multimedia presentation by Brad Rosenstein
Former detective Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man) virtually invented the hard-boiled detective story and his literary style influenced writers from Raymond Chandler to William Burroughs. Using a rich blend of images and video, Brad Rosenstein takes us down the foggy mean streets of Hammett’s San Francisco, exploring how the city and the writer combined to shape the myths around each other as Hammett produced some iconic American fiction.
