Saloon Stories – When Milwaukee Went Dry
Matthew Prigge, author, speaker, historian and public librarian will tell tales of Milwaukee during Prohibition.
The gist of the story during Prohibition — when the Cream City had to find less-than-legal means to keep the party going. Milwaukee didn’t stop drinking during Prohibition, but residents had to get awfully creative about how they got their fix.
Prigge has written five books as well as articles for the Shepherd Express and Milwaukee Magazine and will offer a lively program with lots of photos.
