 William Hazelgrove, author of Al Capone and the 1933 World's Fair: The End of the Gangster Era in Chicago shares the exciting and sprawling history behind the 1933 World's Fair, the last of the golden age. He reveals the story of the six millionaire businessmen, dubbed the Secret Six, who beat Al Capone at his own game, ending the gangster era as prohibition was repealed. Most of all it's the story about a city fighting for survival in the darkest of times; and a shining light of hope called A Century of Progress. Book sale and signing after the program.
