The Floricanto Center for the Performing Arts in Boyle Heights is hosting a free conversation Sunday with Dennis Broe, the author of The Precinct with the Golden Arm.

The third and final entry in Broe’s Mystery Trilogy brings detective Harry Palmer to Boyle Heights.

The conversation will take place from 2-4 pm at the Center, located at La Casa del Mexicano at 2900 Calle Pedro Infante.

Palmer, the series protagonist, is an ex-homicide detective turned private investigator who finds himself in Boyle Heights at the start of a heroin epidemic in Los Angeles. The book explores pharmaceutical company and police corruption throughout the late 40s and early 50s.

Doors for the event open at 1:30 pm, and books from the author will be available for purchase for $15 via cash or PayPal.
