Mary Miley Theobald will be at the Tuckahoe Library

12 May

Meet historian, author, and mystery writer, Mary Miley Theobald, and learn “Why the Roaring Twenties is the Most Fascinating Decade in American History”.  Mary will talk about little-known facts about Prohibition, why the 1920s and not the 1960s marks the real start of women’s liberation, and why it is the perfect decade in which to set a mystery.

In her recent book, The Impersonator, a struggling young vaudeville performer who is persuaded to impersonate a missing heiress gets caught up in a scam that thrusts her deep into the Roaring Twenties’ world of gangsters, bootleggers, and murder.

A book signing will follow the discussion.
