Dana Neighborhood Library to Host Book Discussion and Reading With Local Author Claudine Burnett
2013-10-04 · By Editor
Claudine Burnett will be visiting the Dana Neighborhood Library on Friday, October 11, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. to read from and discuss her book, Prohibition Madness: Life and Death in and around Long Beach, California, 1920-1933. Long Beach had a history of being “dry” when prohibition became the law, so there was already a strong network of underground liquor distribution and secretive speakeasies in place. Wide-scale crime, corruption, and murder were simply the by-products! Ms. Burnett is a recognized authority on Long Beach history, having extensively researched numerous topics and written nine books. This event is free and open to the public.
The local author talk is a monthly program at the Dana Neighborhood Library located at 3680 Atlantic Ave Long Beach, CA 90807.
