On Valentine’s Day in 1930 Alfred Knopf released Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon in its first edition. To celebrate this cornerstone of the hardboiled and noir making it to its eightieth anniversary, Don is offering the first Hammett tour of the year this Valentine’s, Sunday February 14 — four hours, ten bucks, the usual, same details as on the Tour Page. Anyone who wants to show up and contemplate the romance of Sam and Brigid is welcome — one of the few things on Valentine’s you won’t need reservations to attend!
