Muck-raking author to appear in Norfolk

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 12, 2007 07:37 AM


Steven Puleo, the author of "Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919," is scheduled to appear at the Norfolk Public Library tomorrow night to share the story of a collapsed molasses tank that flooded Boston's North End and killed 21 people.

The event, which lasts from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., is the last in a series of three lectures
on historical disasters in Massachusetts. Puleo will also sign copies of his books, including his latest, "The Boston Italians."
