Join us for another round of Noir at the Bar. We'll have four of the hippest hard boiled authors on the scene reading from and discussing their work at Opal Divine's (3601 S. Congress): Jamie Kornegay, George Weir, Bruce Rehburg, and Jesse Sublett. Come for the crime fiction, stay for a drink or two and kick back with another rowdy night of noir, Austin style.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Jamie Kornegay lives in the Mississippi Delta, where he moved in 2006 to establish an independent bookstore, Turnrow Book Co. Before that he was a bookseller, events coordinator, and radio show producer at the famous Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi. He studied creative fiction under Barry Hannah at the University of Mississippi.
George Weir was born in East Texas and spent most of his life there, principally around the Bryan and College Station area. He moved to Austin, Texas, in 2002 and shortly thereafter began writing The Bill Travis Mystery series. He currently lives in Austin with his lovely wife, Sallie, along with two cats and two dogs.
Bruce Rehburg is a freelance writer living in Austin, Texas. Whether soldier or actor, software designer or theatrical producer, he has maintained a life-long interest in crime fiction. His early experiences, first as a U.S Army dependent and later as a young veteran, suit him especially as an author of fiction with a military connection.
Jesse Sublett is the author of several crime novels as well as last year’s nonfiction “Broke, Not Broken: Homer Maxey’s Texas Bank War.” Among the fans of Sublett’s murder-and-cancer memoir, “Never the Same Again” was novelist James Ellroy, who called it “a harrowing work of great candor and soul.” Sublett has been a well-known figure in Austin ever since he founded the seminal 1970s rock band, The Skunks.
