Press Release (ePRNews.com) - OMAHA, Neb. - Mar 31, 2017 - Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Wicked Omaha
Local author Ryan Roenfeld will be available to sign copies of book
In old Omaha, the scent of opium wafted through saloon doors, while prostitutes openly solicited customers. When the St. Elmo theater ran short of the usual entertainment, the residents could always fall back on robbing strangers. Tenants of the Burnt District squirmed under the extorting thumb of a furniture dealer dubbed the Man-Landlady. The games of chance and confidence and outright municipal graft all played a part in a wicked city where gambler Tom Dennison ran politics and Madam Anna Wilson drove philanthropy. Join Ryan Roenfeld for a stroll along the seamier side of Omaha’s past.
About the Author:
Ryan Roenfeld is a fifth-generation resident of Mills County, Iowa, and former president of the Historical Society of Pottawattamie County. At present, he is a full-time student at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
