Virtual Program: Writing The Mob: Michael Cannell
From New York to Los Angeles, and even Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the Mob’s tentacles reached into all corners of North America during the 20th century. Historians continue to explore this rich story to understand what really happened during the Mob’s American heyday. These virtual presentations will feature authors of recently published histories and memoirs.
Michael Cannell chronicles the life of Abe Reles, a Brooklyn mobster who was a leading killer for Murder Inc., then became a government witness and died under mysterious circumstances. This program will be available to watch online here, on Facebook Live and YouTube Live. More details coming soon.
