Author John Binder has spent a lifetime being fascinated by the stories of organized crime, and he tells some of the tales he has learned in his latest book, "Al Capone's Beer Wars: A Complete History of Organized Crime in Chicago during Prohibition."
Binder, a recognized authority on the history of organized crime in Chicago, discusses the most notorious bootlegging gangs in the city and suburbs along with other major rackets including gambling, labor and business racketeering, and narcotics.
John covers the era from 1920 to 1933, giving the big picture of how Chicago's underworld evolved during that period. Binder’s knowledge is so extensive that he has served as an expert consultant for underworld documentaries on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, A&E, and AMC.
Lunch begins at 11:30 AM in the Community Room - Village on the Square. Presentation begins at 12:15PM. Cost: $10 for lunch.
