November 9: “Tom & Lucky and George & Cokey Flo” book signing with author C. Joseph Greaves
Author C. Joseph Greaves will sign copies of his book, “Tom & Lucky and George & Cokey Flo” Monday, November 9, in the Museum book store. The novel is based on the real-life 1936 vice trial that ended the criminal reign of one of the most notorious mobsters of all time—Lucky Luciano. By following the lives of the trial’s four key figures: defendant Luciano, prosecutor Thomas E. Dewey, defense attorney George Morton Levy and star witness Cokey Flo Brown, the reader is given front row seats to a courtroom drama that gripped the nation nearly 80 years ago. Greaves based his novel on exclusive access he was given to the files of Luciano’s defense attorney Levy.
