Come join us at SWILL — Reno’s newest gathering spot — for coffee, wine, snacks and an afternoon with Reno author Maggy Anthony reading from her new mystery Death is a Crapshoot, set in Reno during the 1950s.
Anthony will speak of her experiences in Reno that led to the writing of her book, which is the first in a series of mysteries featuring Hank Faro, P.I., and the mix of imagination necessary to a work of fiction.
She will be joined by renowned Nevada Historian, Phil Earl, who will speak about gambling in Reno from its beginnings through the infamous Kefauver Hearings on mafia involvement in Nevada in late 1950 in Las Vegas.
A question and answer session will follow.
