Mayhem!

Join us at the library on Monday, October 3rd 7:00-8:15 to hear local author Matthew Prigge discuss his latest book: Milwaukee Mayhem: Murder and Mystery in the Cream City's First Century! "Milwaukee Mayhem" uncovers the little-remembered and rarely told history of the underbelly of a Midwestern metropolis and offers a new perspective on Milwaukee’s early years, forgoing the major historical signposts found in traditional histories and focusing instead on the strange and brutal tales of mystery, vice, murder, and disaster that were born of the city’s transformation from lakeside settlement to American metropolis. Author Matthew J. Prigge presents these stories as they were recounted to the public in the newspapers of the era, using the vivid and often grim language of the times to create an engaging and occasionally chilling narrative of a forgotten Milwaukee.

There will be a book signing after the presentation.

Registration is required. 262-785-4980
