Meet T.J. English, “America’s Top Chronicler of Organized Crime”
April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a special evening as T. J. English discusses The Corporation, his epic new crime story that couples one of the most violent criminal organizations of modern days with a political backdrop of emigration that still resonates today, with Larry Davidson, interviewer extraordinaire. The author expands upon the atmospheric, rich topic of the mafia’s reign in Cuba that he explored in the New York Times bestseller Havana Nocturne, now revealing how political revolution led to the birth of a powerful Cuban exile crime organization in the U.S. From the Bay of Pigs disaster to the Kennedy assignation and Watergate, The Corporation details how Castro’s revolution shaped a generation of Cuban exiles and chronicles their American experience in this “sprawling true-crime saga.” (Publishers Weekly). Booklist raves, “It’s a gripping, blood-soaked story, rich in drama and suspense… Fans of true crime, especially those with a hankering for epic-sized stories, should flock to this book.” The book has already been subject of a hot auction in Hollywood with Paramount snapping up the film rights in the first deal for Appian Way Productions, with Leonardo DiCaprio producing and Benicio Del Toro attached to play José Miguel Battle Sr.—the “godfather” of The Corporation. T.J. English has appeared on national television programs, such as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and CBS This Morning, and is a captivating interview. . Any books you want signed must be purchased at Turn of the Corkscrew, Books & Wine. (Bring your receipt if you purchased the book here prior to the event.) Thank you for understanding.
