We are proud to host Iowa author Linda McCann on Thursday, June 8th at 6:30pm. Linda will be presenting her book "Prohibition in Eastern Iowa":

Prohibition was the thirteen year time when it was illegal to manufacture, transport or sell liquor in the U.S. All states had to abide by the law. Of course, all states had people who broke the law. Everything that happened in movies, etc. happened in Iowa also. We had murders over alcohol in Iowa. Al Capone was in Iowa. There were gunfights on our narrow roads between mobsters and cops. Linda will share specific items related to DeWitt history.
