This month we will be reading Live by Night by Dennis Lehane. In 1926, during Prohibition, Joe Coughlin defies his strict law-and-order upbringing by climbing a ladder of organized crime that takes him from Boston to Cuba, where he encounters a dangerous cast of characters who are all fighting for their piece of the American dream. A riveting story of one man’s rise from Boston petty thief to the Gulf Coast’s most successful rum runner.
