Al Capone and Eliot Ness: The Real Story of the Untouchables

by Joseph Geringer

In this thrilling presentation, Joseph Geringer—actor, author, and historian—details the government’s fight against Capone gunmen and their stranglehold on the Windy City. It’s much more exciting, and factual, than the movies. And YOU are there! This colorful discourse sweeps you back to the early 1930s; you can almost hear the rumble of streetcars, the syncopation of bluelight trumpets and the rat-a-tat staccato of tommy guns. And you’ll meet “Scarface Al” and the Justice Department agent who helped bring him down.

About Joseph Geringer

Joseph Geringer, who hails from the Southwest Side, has researched the subject for 35 years and even interviewed the last remaining member of Ness’ graft-free Untouchable squad, gathering rare input not found in books. He has appeared on The History Channel® and authored many magazine articles and a three-act play, Near To Me—An Irish Gangster’s Love Story, about Prohibition-era Chicago.

This presentation is in-person only. Please join us in person at the Schaumburg Township District Library, 130 S Roselle Rd, Schaumburg, IL. Prior to the presentation, CAGGNI will hold its annual business meeting.
