Birmingham Noir Nighttime Walking Tour

county jail
Birmingham Noir
Murders. Mysteries. Fallen Women
Just as the afternoon sun slips out of the downtown sky, like a platinum blonde sliding into a black party dress, the night owls will gather at the library.

Join Jim Baggett, BPL Archivist, for a nighttime walking tour of notorious downtown historic sites. Tour dates are October 26 and November 2 and begin at 5:45 p.m. in the atrium of the Central Library. The tour lasts approximately one hour and there will be a break for refreshments at Safari Cup.

Admission is FREE but reservations are required. Contact Jim Baggett at (205) 226-3631 or jbaggett@bham.lib.al.us.
