:Monday, July 28th:

7:15p.m., Decatur Library Auditorium

In Wicked Atlanta: The Sordid Side of Peach City History, Laurel-Ann Dooley navigates the underworld of Atlanta’s past, leaving a history of Atlanta as few have known. The only American city to have been destroyed by fire as an act of war, Atlanta has been host to a much darker side. From elaborate parties hosted by wealthy felons inside the federal penitentiary, to billionaire bootleggers and murderous rich boys that reached all the way to the White House, Wicked Atlanta delves into the dark past of a city with a far more salacious side than any tale has ever told. Laurel-Anne Dooley is the author Best Friend Thief, named a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the National Indie Excellence Book Awards. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Palm Beach Post, The National Law Journal and The Boston Globe. Books will be provided by Eagle Eye Books.
