Book & Author Event – Sin City Gangsters: The Rise and Decline of the Mob in Las Vegas
February 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm ESTFree
Jeffrey Sussman is the author of 16 critically acclaimed books of nonfiction. His most recent book, about which he will speak, is Sin City Gangsters: The Rise and Decline of the Mob in Las Vegas. It contains accounts of how the most powerful mobsters in the country built, bought, and controlled not only gambling casinos in Vegas, but also many important politicians, who did the mob’s bidding. As one critic wrote, “The chapter on Sinatra alone makes it worth the cost of admission into the seamy yet enticing underbelly of Las Vegas.”
This program will take place in the Rotunda.
