Historic North Fork Tales: Rumrunners in Suffolk County: Tales from Liquor Island with Amy Folk

February 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

- $20 – $30

Noted Southold historian, Ms. Folk takes us on quite the journey. Nicknamed Liquor Island, Long Island was a rumrunners paradise during Prohibition. With its proximity to major markets and coastal communities, Suffolk County was full up on illegal liquor. Smugglers would bring cases from offshore and would secretly hide the liquor in local sheds and garages. Coded messages often arranged sales and logistics. Quiet towns experienced violence as locals became entangled in dangerous liaisons with bootleggers.

Reading to culminate with a book discussion led by Ms. Folk.

Hallockville Members: $20 per session, $75 for all sessions 

Non-Hallockville Members: $30 per session, $110 for all sessions.
