Sussman on When Mob Tactic Ruled at Rogers Memorial Library


Organized crime and the world of professional boxing are intertwined with absorbing detail in “Boxing and the Mob,” a book that covers the mob’s involvement in the sport throughout the entire 20th century.

Join author Jeffrey Sussman at the Rogers Memorial Library at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, September 25, for a talk about this notorious era in American history. It’s a story filled with tales of fixed fights, paid-off referees, greedy managers, and champion boxers who either caved in to the mob, or stood firm against them.

Bring lunch. The library will serve cider and cookies. Rogers Memorial Library is at 91 Coopers Farm Lane in Southampton. For reservations call 631-283-0774 ext. 523  or email
