Last month the Hammett tour hit the mean streets on Valentine’s Day, encountering a gang of balloons — this month Don is once again slipping on the gumshoes to guide a walk on Palm Sunday, March 28, his usual tribute to the late great Charles Willeford, who passed away on Palm Sunday twenty-two years ago. If interested, pocket a tenspot and show up, following the directions on the Tour Page.
In 1977 Don Herron began leading The Dashiell Hammett Tour, now the longest-running literary tour in the nation. On this site you’ll find information on current walks — dates, where to meet, arranging tours by appointment — plus a hard-boiled blog with news, reviews of books and film, and a dash of noir.
The latest and greatest edition to self-guide you up and down the mean streets.
