Learn about “Moonshine & Bootleggers in SE Iowa During Prohibition” at the Richland Public Library!

Linda McCann, Iowa author and historian, will present a program on “Prohibition in Southeast Iowa” at the Richland Public Library on Saturday, March 18th at 1:00 p.m.

Prohibition was the period of time in U.S. history when it was illegal to manufacture, transport or sell alcohol in the U.S. Despite this, farmers throughout Iowa, including southeast Iowa, turned their corn into liquor. Linda McCann has researched the history of moonshine in southeast Iowa and has spoken to the children of bootleggers in our area to find out how and why liquor was manufactured and distributed during the prohibition years spanning 1920- 1933.

 This free program is open to the public. For more information, please call (319- 456-6541) or email (richlib@natel.net) the library.
