On Monday evening, December 5, at 6:30, the Brooklyn Historical Society will host a book talk by Deirdre Bair, author of Al Capone: His Life, Legacy, and Legend. Born in Brooklyn in 1899, Capone rose to infamy as head of the rackets–principally bootlegging during the prohibition years–in Chicago. “With exclusive access to his descendants,” Ms. Bair “reveals the man behind the notorious gangster.” Admission is $5, or free for BHS or Green-Wood members. Purchase or reserve tickets here.
