Dennis Lehane and the co-owners of Newtonville Books have gathered a bevy of little-known gems between the covers of “Boston Noir 2: The Classics.” Publication of the anthology will be celebrated with a reading by Linda Barnes, David Ryan, and Atul Gawande at Harvard Bookstore on Monday. Newtonville Books will host a reading on Saturday. On that night, Lehane will join his co-editors, bookstore co-owners Jaime Clarke and Mary Cotton; Ryan and guest readers. Both events start at 7 p.m.
