A treasure worth killing for. Sam Spade, a shopworn private eye with his own solitary code of ethics. A beautiful and treacherous woman whose loyalties shift at the drop of a dime. These are the ingredients of Dashiell Hammett’s coolly glittering gem of detective fiction, a novel that has haunted three generations of readers. Free copies of The Maltese Falcon are available at the library while supplies last.
Join us for a discussion of this year’s Big Read title, The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett, at En Season Café. There is a flat $10 fee for lunch. Please pay and register at the Reference Desk.
