It doesn’t get any simpler than this: just like it says on the Tour Page, you’ll find a Hammett tour running each and every Sunday this month. Four hours. Ten bucks. If interested, just show up by noon. And remember the advice of the late, great Charles Willeford and make sure you wear comfortable shoes.
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.
