On Thursday, April 8, 2021, at 7:00 PM, please join Inlandia at Home for an engaging conversation with award-winning crime fiction author Tod Goldberg, whose latest book is "The Low Desert: Gangster Stories," a collection of short fiction set in the Inland Empire.

Signed copies of "The Low Desert" will be available for purchase through Mystery Ink Bookstore – http://www.mysteryink.com – and participants are invited to send a copy of their receipt to cati.porter@inlandiainstitute.org for an early-entry meet and greet with the author, an event crime fiction aficionados won’t want to miss.

In "The Low Desert," Raymond Carver meets Elmore Leonard in this extraordinary collection of contemporary crime writing set in the critically acclaimed Gangsterland universe, a series called “gloriously original” by The New York Times Book Review. Witty, brutal, and fast-paced, these stories expand upon the saga of Chicago hitman-turned-Vegas-rabbi Sal Cupertino — first introduced in "Gangsterland" and continued in "Gangster Nation" — while revealing how the line between good and bad is often a mirage.

Tod Goldberg is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen books, including "The Low Desert," "Gangster Nation," and "Gangsterland." A Professor of Creative Writing at the University of California, Riverside, Goldberg founded and directs the Low Residency MFA in Creative Writing & Writing for the Performing Arts.
