Gurley Girls Book Club: Wicked City

Location: Gurley Public Library
Date: Tuesday, April 26, 2011 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Phenix City, Alabama, from its founding during the Civil War, has been the dirty, not-so-little secret of the South. It is a riverside no-man's land, a place where a blind eye has historically been turned to vice of every sort, including prostitution, gambling, and even murder. Atkins shows us Phenix City in its 1950s hey-day, where a battle is building between a handful of decent citizens and the underworld willing to do anything to maintain their control.
