The Shadow Knows October 24, 2007

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

What lurks–or lurked–in the shadows of downtown Birmingham? Find out on a “Birmingham Noir” (love that name) walking tour led by Birmingham Public Library archivist Jim Baggett. He’ll tell tales of murders and mysteries and other dark but tantalizing moments from downtown’s past. He’s giving two hourlong tours–on Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, beginning at 5:45 at the library and taking a break at Safari Cup. It’s free to join the tours, but you must make reservations at (205) 226-3631 or jbaggett@bham.lib.al.us.

I learned about this event via Christina at The Terminal, who learned about it on the Birmingham Public Library’s blog. The BPL deserves kudos for creating a cool online presence. In addition to its fascinating blog, it’s active on both Flickr and MySpace.
