This program is now sold out. To be added to a wait-list, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Al Capone is the most infamous mobster of all time. Seemingly every aspect of his life has been explored in print and film. But there’s more to the story. Capone’s eldest living granddaughter, Diane, has published a memoir based on her personal memories and stories told by her grandmother, Mae, and other relatives. It provides a unique window into the private life of Capone, who was both a brutal crime boss as a young man and a generous and devoted family patriarch in his final years.
Diane Capone, the eldest living granddaughter of Al Capone, is the author of Al Capone: Stories My Grandmother Told Me. She was born in Miami Beach, Florida, and moved to California as a teenager. She graduated from high school, married and had a family while living in the San Francisco Bay Area. She graduated from San Jose State University with a bachelor’s in business and psychology. After working in venture capital and other business positions, she completed a master’s in counseling at Santa Clara University. She worked for the next 20 years as a counselor and instructor at Mission College in Santa Clara, California. Her second book, Growing Up Capone, will be published later in 2020.
