Stillwater Public Library, in partnership with ArtReach St. Croix and the National Endowment for the Arts, is bringing The Big Read to Stillwater in April 2017. The featured title is a perennial favorite: Dashiell Hammett’s 1929 detective classic The Maltese Falcon. Hammet is considered the father of the “hard-boiled” style of detective writing, and The Maltese Falcon is undoubtedly his opus. In conjunction with The Big Read, Club Book is pleased to host a special event featuring Hammett granddaughter and noted scholar Julie Rivett. She has edited five books on her celebrated grandfather’s work, including: Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett (2001), Dashiell Hammett: A Daughter Remembers (2001), Return of the Thin Man (2012), The Hunter and Other Stories (2013), and The Continental Op: Case Files Complete (2016). Rivett is also a trustee of the Hammett estate, and delivers lectures around the world on Hammett and autobiographical Falcon protagonist Sam Spade.

A podcast of Julie Rivett’s Club Book discussion will be available a few days after the event!
