speaking & signing
|Tonight author and historian Richard Zelade is here to share with us a lurid account of our Capital City's historic underbelly, Guy Town. Today's pleasure-seeking visitors to the Warehouse District walk on top of Guy Town, a haven for notorious madams, prostitutes, druggies and drunkards lost to history, as well as names still remembered--Ben Thompson, O. Henry and Johnny Ringo roamed its streets looking for a good time. From murderers to con men, crooked cops and more, meet the cast of characters that gave Guy Town its reputation|
