Upcoming programs at Bay Village branch library

In the 1970s, Danny Greene and John Nardi tried to muscle in on the Cleveland mob’s operations. The result was a bloody mob war that left Cleveland with the moniker “Bomb City USA.” Local historian Dennis Sutcliffe will present the life of Danny Greene from his childhood in North Collinwood, to his time as head of the local longshoremen’s union, to his war with the local mafia when bombings were a regular occurrence in Cleveland. Join us at the Bay Village branch library for an evening of local mob lore on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7:00 p.m.
