See you in Montclair

At the Montclair Public Library, to be exact. That’s where I’ll be on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. to talk about American Dictators and the lives of political bosses Frank Hague and Nucky Johnson. Come by, say hi, buy a book and I’ll sign it for you.

Everything’s ducky with Nucky

If you’re in the area of Union Township next week, come by the Union Public Library to hear me hold forth on the career of Atlantic City political boss Enoch “Nucky” Johnson. I’ll probably also work in some stuff on Frank Hague, the man who just barely beats out Nucky for the title of America’s greatest political boss, and I’ll be selling copies of my book The Last Three Miles: Politics, Murder, and the Construction of America’s First Superhighway.

The talk is set for Tuesday, March 1, at 7 p.m.

The library is at 1980 Morris Avenue in Union. For more info, you can call the reference desk at (908) 851-5450, ext. 5452.
