Author Dave Wedge will give a talk about his book called Hunting Whitey: The Inside Story of America's Most Wanted Crime Boss which was co-authored with Casey Sherman. In this virtual program via Zoom, the author will describe the tale of James "Whitey" Bulger, the South Boston crime boss who died in a federal prison in West Virginia in 2018. Milton resident Wedge has produced many other non-fiction titles also, working with Sherman, including Boston Strong which was the basis for the movie "Patriots Day." Hunting Whitey is an exhaustive read which brings interviews and great reporting together to tell the complete story of the leader of the Winter Hill Gang. After his 16-year flight from justice that made Bulger a legend, the investigation also brought to light FBI corruption. Join us for a fascinating program, which is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the MPL.
