Author Event: Leo Warring – The Foggy Bottom Gang

June 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join us as we host local author Leo Warring as he discusses his book, The Foggy Bottom Gang. Before Prohibition, Leo, Emmitt, and Charles ‘Rags’ Warring (the author’s father) worked as laborers in their father’s barrel shop. When the (illegal) booze started flowing, all three quickly got caught up in the wild and sometimes violent underworld of Washington, D.C. Their exploits–including a lucrative numbers racket, gangland shootings, and high-profile courtroom trials–created sensational headlines and thrust them into an unwanted spotlight which took a toll on their personal lives.
