This event is in the past
Thurs June 27, 2019, 7 pm
Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum Pike Place Market (Seattle)
Pike Place Podcast host Jerry Antush and producer Bob Trombley will interview local historian Brad Holden about his fantastic new book, Seattle Prohibition: Bootleggers, Rumrunners & Graft in the Queen City. The book chronicles the early wars between the city's vice lords and buzzkills, shedding light on the undersung adventures of people such as Johnny Schnarr (a badass rumrunner), Frank Gatt (a bootlegger who stored his massive copper stills in dairy barns to hide the smell), and William Whitney (of the Seattle Prohibition Bureau, who was tasked with shutting all this down). by Stranger Editor Rich Smith
