Howard Hughes, one of the most intriguing people in Las Vegas history, had a profound effect on the community and the Mob’s hold on the Strip. His investments in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s helped transform the city. But the billionaire’s secretive and reclusive nature has generated innumerable myths that obscure the true story. The Mob Museum’s Geoff Schumacher, author of a newly revised and expanded biography of the billionaire, explains how truth is stranger than fiction in the life of Howard Hughes.

A book signing will follow in the Museum’s retail store.
