Hear the account of the battles waged by a rookie district attorney against organized crime and the Ku Klux Klan in 1920s Colorado. Alan Prendergast, author of Gangbuster, will share about this little-known but crucial turning point in the state’s history, a struggle against corruption and extremism that reminds us that the past is closer than we realize.

Prendergast is the author of The Poison Tree and Gangbuster: One Man’s Battle Against Crime, Corruption, and the Klan. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, Outside, the Los Angeles Times, Westword, and other publications. He lives in Denver and writes frequently about the justice system, historic crimes, and high-security prisons.
