Noir: From Page to Screen - Mitch Brian
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
Screenwriter Mitch Brian employs original texts and film clips to illustrate how classic (Chandler, Hammett, Thompson) and modern noir literature has found its way to film and television. His presentation is part of While the City Sleeps, this year’s Adult Winter Reading Program.
Brian has written teleplays for all the major networks and screenplays for directors including Chris Columbus and Oliver Stone.
He is a visiting assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he teaches screenwriting and directing.
