The 1920s era went by many names; the Jazz Age, the Age of Intolerance, the Age of Wonderful Nonsense, and the Roaring Twenties. Join historian as he explores the history and stories of America’s roaring 1920s. This program is offered in conjunction with the Woodbury Public Library’s Speakeasy Gala scheduled for September 29th.
John Cilio is a historian, storyteller, a member of the Organization of American Historians and the Association for the Study of Connecticut History. He thrives on researching the ghosts of our past, uncovering the underlying forces and historical trends that one single event rarely impacts. He believes that often the consequences of a historical incident were hidden from those that experienced it, yet looking back, one can sense the full impact of their moments in time.
