Author talk and book signing with Selwyn Raab

Sel Raab’s Five Families: The Rise, Decline, and Resurgence of America’s Most Powerful Mafia Empires is the definitive book on New York’s Five Families. In celebration of the book’s newly updated 20th anniversary edition, he’s coming to The Mob Museum to speak about the colorful past of New York’s Mafia and how it’s reinventing itself for the 21st century.

Raab’s groundbreaking book traces the history of the Cosa Nostra, its astronomical growth in America, how its culture helped it avoid conviction for decades, how it was able to reorganize after several government victories, and how it’s profiting once again in the digital age.

Raab will share the thrilling insider stories and insights that are a direct result of his 40 years of reporting on the most legendary figures in organized crime in The Big Apple. This is an event everyone will want to see!
