Event Description

Prohibition was the 13-year time frame when it was illegal in the U.S. to manufacture, transport or sell alcohol. This was anywhere in the U.S! Al Capone did hide out in Iowa. There were gunfights on our narrow two-lane roads over liquor, and there were murders in Iowa. Whatever went on nationwide, happened in Iowa also. Linda McCann was able to speak with the children of moonshiners and bootleggers and shares their memories. She will have instances specific to the Polk City area. Linda’s books will be available for purchase.
