Los Angeles: City of Angels and Devils

Los Angeles is a city that tells one story and lives another. Ryan Gattis’s Safe is an LA noir thriller set against the backdrop of the 2008 financial crash. He discusses the city, noir fiction and street gangs with Jake Kerridge, crime fiction critic for the Daily Telegraph.

Ryan Gattis is an author and educator, and the author of the novels Kung Fu and All Involved, about the 1992 LA riots, which won the American Library Association's Alex Award and the Lire Award for Noir of the Year in France.  He is a member of the Los Angeles street art crew UGLARworks. 

Enjoy food and drink purchased from the Knowledge Centre Bar from 18.00 and after the event until the Bar closes at 22.00.
