Film Noir author Shannon Clute is coming to the Oasis!

Postby Lzcutter » September 10th, 2012, 7:41 pm

Hey there, Oasisians (is that a word? if not, it should be)!

All you Noir fans are in for a treat!!!!

Great news! Film noir author and TCM brand manager, Shannon Clute, will be joining us at the end of the month.

Shannon is the co-author of The Maltese Touch of Evil: Film Noir and Potential Criticism (Dartmouth College Press, 2011) and the co-creator of three popular podcast series: Out of the Past: Investigating Film Noir, a film history and analysis program; Behind the Black Mask: Mystery Writers Revealed, an author interview show; and Yaddocast, the official podcast of the prestigious artists' retreat Yaddo—all with Richard Edwards.

Here's their website- http://noircast.net/962D9D768D9243B2AE4A/

And a YouTube interview: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyDpM_-FIvg[/youtube]

Out of the Past was recently selected by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for national radio transmission as part of their Top of The Pods series, and Yaddocast received mention in O, The Oprah Magazine.



A former professor who holds a PhD from Cornell University, Clute has been invited to speak on film noir at such institutions as the George Eastman House and WXXI public radio. He is also a scholar and writer of hard-boiled fiction, and his first novel was one of ten semi-finalists in the inaugural Court TV "Search for the Next Great Crime Writer" contest. He works as a brand manager for Turner Classic Movies in Atlanta.

As part of his job at TCM, he oversees the publication of the yearly TCM Film Festival program among other duties.

For more on his book, read here: http://woodyhaut.blogspot.com/2012/03/maltest-touch-of-evil-film-noir-and.html

So join us, the last weekend of the month and start thinking of your questions for Shannon today!

Shannon Clute will be joining us on Friday, Sept. 28th-Sunday, Sept. 30th.
