Murders. Mysteries. Fallen Women.
Just as the afternoon sun slips out of the downtown sky, like a platinum blond sliding into a black party dress, the night owls will gather at the library.
Get ready for Halloween by putting on your walking shoes and joining Birmingham Public Library Archivist Jim Baggett for the 4th annual Birmingham Noir tour of some of the Magic City's infamous historic sites. Visit the location of Birmingham's most famous brothel, spectacular 19th century murders, political intrigues, and the scandal that nearly destroyed Bull Connor's career.
