First Wednesday of each month, unless otherwise stated

Do you often stay up late reading a mystery novel that you just can’t put down? Do you love the low-key lighting and corrupt and desperate characters of film noir?

Join the Honorable Judge Michael Ponsor, mystery author Susan Kelly, and Smith professor Dean Flower for a reading and discussion of crime fiction and film including the hard-boiled mysteries of American literature.

Copies of the Maltese Falcon and a complete Schedule of our events will be distributed.

This program is presented by All Hamptons Big Read. The communities of Northampton, Easthampton, Southampton and Westhampton are coming together for this project to present discussions and events in March through May of 2015 based on the noir classic, The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett. All Hamptons Read has been awarded a “Big Read” grant by the National Endowment for the Arts which will assist us to purchase copies of the book and offer programming in each community. 

The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
