Oakland Noir Night: Live Readings, Music, Tap Takeover with Novel Brewing Co 7pm

Oakland Stories paired with Oakland beers.  Come bask in the literary and social delights The Town has to offer as Novel Brewing Company takes over the Octopus beer taps, and authors from The Oakland Noir anthology read original crime stories set in Oakland.
From 7-8pm the Novel Brewers will be on site and on taps -- all 4 beer taps -- with tasting flights available.  Novel's brewmasters will present the beers and have a Q & A.  http://www.novelbrewing.com/
Then, at 8, Oakland Noir editors, Jerry Thompson and Eddie Muller are joined by the contributors of their new book. 
Brand-new stories by: Nick Petrulakis, Kim Addonizio, Keenan Norris, Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder, Katie Gilmartin, Dorothy Lazard, Harry Louis Williams II, Carolyn Alexander, Phil Canalin, Judy Juanita, Jamie DeWolf, Nayomi Munaweera, Mahmud Rahman, Tom McElravey, Joe Loya, and Eddie Muller.  
Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir.  Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book -- in this case, Oakland!
