Wine and Crime: A celebration of all things noir

1410924039343I took an instant liking to the fabulous Kirsty Manning-Wilcox of The Reading Tree and Bellota/Prince Wine Store fame when we met at a couple of writers festivals in regional Victoria this year. When she invited me to be part of a literary event called ‘Wine and Crime: A celebration of all things noir’, it proved ours was a true meeting of the minds.

‘Wine and Crime’ brings together two of my favourite things in one literary event. I’ll be joining Text Publishing stablemate Jock Serong (left), whose debut novel, Quota, has been garnering great reviews, to chat over dinner about all things noir. As Kirsty puts it:

Author shot_Paul X StoneyThere will be readings, conversation and a lot of laughs as diners will see that crime writers really have the most fun! Gather at award-winning restaurant Bellota for a delicious 3-course meal matched with wine … Pinot Noir, of course!

Bellota Wine Bar and Restaurant also garners great reviews and, frankly, the whole thing sounds like my fantasy literary event.
