Join us for a discussion of Mobsters, Madams & Murder in Steubenville, OH: The Story of "Little Chicago" (2014-Nonfiction) by Susan M. Guy. Gambling, prostitution, and bootlegging have been going on in Steubenville for well over one hundred years. Its Water Street red-light district drew men from hundreds of miles away, as well as underage runaways. The white slave trade was rampant, and along with all the vice crimes, murders became a weekly occurrence. Law enforcement seemed to turn a blind eye, and cries of political corruption were heard in the state capital. Newspapers nationwide would come to nickname this mecca of murder "Little Chicago."  Copies of the book will be distributed at the September discussion and limited copies will be available at the Centerville Library Reference Desk after that discussion. The programs are held at the historic Smith House (Bill Yeck Park) located at 2230 E.

Join us for a discussion of The Dayton Flight Factory: The Wright Brothers and the Birth of Aviation (2014-Nonfiction) by local author Timothy R. Gaffney (author scheduled to lead discussion). The Wright brothers are known around the world as the inventors of the airplane. But few people (except in Dayton) know the brothers invented it in Dayton, not in North Carolina. Efforts to preserve historic places in the Dayton region where the brothers lives and worked are paying off. In this book, the author uses historical research and today's aviation heritage sites to retell the story of the Wright brothers from a hometown perspective. Copies of the book will be distributed at the October discussion and limited copies will be available at the Centerville Library Reference Desk after that discussion. The programs are held at the historic Smith House (Bill Yeck Park) located at 2230 E. Centerville Station Road.
