Area authors to read Gangster stories in St. Charles

If you’re looking for an early start to your weekend, but don’t want to be out too late, then I’ve got the event for you. Author W.E. Mueller will be reading from his book, “Peaches & Cream” tomorrow night, Sept. 2, from 7-9 p.m. in downtown St. Charles.

I interviewed him earlier this week about the event, and the story ran today in the St. Charles Journal. W.E. Mueller, who’s known as Bill to his friends, knows how to write a good story. I’ve heard him read the story he plans to read tomorrow, titled “Uncle Albert” before at Main Street Books, and it’s one I’m looking forward to hearing again. Also, you can read another story from the collection by visiting High Hill Press web site, his publisher.

Bill told me he’s looking forward to meeting Mike Flynn, son of former St. Louis gangster Rob Flynn, who confessed to shooting John Paul Spica in his memoir, “Confessions of a Mob Hitman.” Mike will also be reading and answering questions about St. Louis’ mob history. After interviewing Mike, I can tell he’s a guy who’s not afraid to tell it like it was. And anyone¬† interested in hearing a good mob story – that happens to be true – will enjoy the evening.
