“The Most Dangerous Man Alive: 1929”

Join author Chriss Lyon for a presentation of “The Most Dangerous Man Alive: 1929”. Learn about the relatively unknown gangster who killed St. Joseph Police Officer Charles Skelly on December 14, 1929, and who was found to be in possession of the two Thompson submachine guns that would later be ballistically connected to the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, one of the first major crime investigations in history. The program also focuses on a few of Capone’s henchmen who lived in Berrien and LaPorte Counties, along with the routes of travel between Detroit and Chicago where bootleggers operated their businesses. Space is limited and registration is required for this program. Visit any branch or call 574-314-6454 to register.

The event is finished.
