Event Details

The History Book Group will discuss Deirdre Bair’s “Al Capone: His Life, Legacy, and Legend” at 6:30 p.m. Thurs. March 22nd on the 2nd floor of the library. Born in 1899 in Brooklyn, New York, to poor, Italian immigrant parents, Al Capone went on to become the most infamous gangster in American history. In 1925, during the height of Prohibition, his multi-million-dollar Chicago bootlegging, prostitution, and gambling operation dominated the organized-crime scene. From his heyday to the present moment, Capone’s life has gripped the public imagination—but who was the man behind the legend?
