Prolific North Bay author and frequent Bohemian contributor Jonah Raskin is best known for his poetry and books on cannabis and Jack London. Now Raskin makes a hard-boiled foray into the world of crime fiction with his latest novel, a self-described eco-noir thriller, ‘Dark Land, Dark Mirror.’ Following the female private eye Tioga Vignetta, the murder mystery is set in the wine country and casts ominous shadows across the Golden State. Raskin reads from Dark Land, Dark Mirror with a book launch on Thursday, Nov. 9, at Readers’ Books, 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. 7pm. Free admission. 707.939.1779.
