Beer, Bootleggers and Bad Guys
The Maplewood Library, 3023 Southlawn Drive, will host a series of programs on the Prohibition era in March. It’s been more than 80 years since the end of Prohibition, but America’s uneasy relationship with alcohol persists, and our continued fascination with the Era of Gangsters and Bootleggers shows that the story of “Demon Rum” still deserves to be told. Join us on the following dates at 7 p.m. for the following programs:
• Tuesday, March 4: Beer and Brewing in the Land of Sky Blue Waters
• Wednesday, March 12: Boozy Ballads and Temperance Tunes
• Tuesday, March 18: Gangsters of Ramsey County: a Hair-Raising History
