Prohibition topic of talk
Local author Annette Kassis will speak about the years of Prohibition in Sacramento from noon to 1:30 at Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building, 914 Capitol Mall, Sacramento. According to legend, Sacramento’s open opposition to Prohibition, which lasted from 1920 to 1933, caused it to be labeled the “wettest city in the nation.” The event takes place on the third floor in Gillis Hall. The event is free but a reservation is recommended. Go to www.library.ca.gov for more information and a reservation link.
