An Evening with Dashiell Hammett's granddaughter, Julie Rivett

Join us for an evening with Hammett scholar and granddaughter Julie M. Rivett as she explores her grandfather’s life and works. Rivett has said, “The book is fun, fascinating and literate. I hope to help readers see it a little bit the way I do—as a book that can be read on many levels. It’s a romp, a romantic drama, a hardboiled crime adventure and a deeply insightful exploration of the human experience.” One of four grandchildren of Dashiell Hammett and a trustee for the Hammett literary estate, she has worked with Hammett biographer Richard Layman and edited four books by or about her grandfather. ‘Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett 1921-1960’ and her mother’s memoir, ‘Dashiell Hammett: A Daughter Remembers,’ both nominated for Edgar Awards, were released in 2001.
