The Motor City boasts a long and sordid history of scoundrels, cheats and ne’er-do-wells. The wheeling and dealing prowess of founding father Antoine Cadillac is the stuff of legend. The slovenly and eccentric Augustus Brevoort Woodward, well known as a judge but better known as a drunkard, renamed himself, reshaped the city streets and then named them after himself, creating a legion of enemies along the way.
Join local author, historian, and creator of the Prohibition Detroit blog, Mickey Lyons for a talk about her book Wicked Detroit: the Scoundrels, Cads and Reprobates Who Shaped the City.
