Join us for a FREE lecture at the Huntington Library on Raymond Chandler, co-founder of the school of hard-boiled detective fiction. Chandler drew on many real events and people to create his iconic Los Angeles mystery novels. (At night the gardens will be closed, but Friends' Hall in the library will be open for this lecture.)
The lecture will be presented by Judith Freeman, author of "The Long Embrace." She will discuss Chandler's real-life sources, including a 1922 celebrity murder case that became the inspiration for much of Chandler's work.
