Prohibition’s Proving Ground: Cops, Cars and Rumrunners in the Toledo-Detroit-Windsor Corridor with Joseph Boggs

June 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Do you like stories about booze, cars, cops, and crime? Then join Joe Boggs, the author of a new book called Prohibition’s Proving Ground, as he shares how prohibition enforcement and automobile culture collided on the Toledo-Detroit-Windsor corridor. With a special emphasis on the Downriver area, the presentation will focus on how our region’s automobile boom significantly aided local rumrunners but challenged those responsible for enforcing dry laws.

Joseph Boggs will bring his book to sell & sign for a discounted price of $20.
