POSTPONED - Janelle M. Scheffelmaier - Wicked Boise - Boise Public Library Main Branch
This event has been postponed to a later date.
Join author Janelle Scheffelmaier for a talk and book signing for her new release, Wicked Boise. Known today for its beauty, safety, and livability, Idaho's capital city does harbor a few skeletons in its closet. Vigilantes lynched Ada County's first sheriff. A wealthy brothel owner was viciously murdered. The sensational Prohibition-era trial of a moonshine ring that included the sheriff, police chief, and a prominent doctor initiated a morality crusade by law enforcement. These and other stories of corruption, scandal, and injustice take center stage in Wicked Boise.

Scheffelmaier was born and raised in the Idaho Panhandle and is passionate about storytelling. She now resides in Boise and enjoys exploring the mountains with her daughter and their overly-energetic dog. She is also the author of Butte and the 1918 Influenza Pandemic.
