Good Time Party Girl: The Notorious Life of Dirty Helen Cromwell at Virtual

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Audience: Adults

Categories: Book Sales, Author/Storyteller, Virtual

Register for the program here. Join Christina Ward, Vice-President of Feral House Publishing as she shares the wonderfully entertaining life and history of Dirty Helen Cromwell, a local legend in Milwaukee.  Dirty Helen was a Madam, mobbed up, had people killed, was Al Capone's girlfriend and had the filthiest mouth anyone had.  But how many of these stories are true? Good Time Party Girl: The Notorious Life of Dirty Helen Cromwell, 1886-1969 is Dirty Helen's full-tilt autobiography told with ribald wit.  Helen throws off the myth that our grannies (and great-grannies) were docile homebodies. Want to purchase a book? Boswell has copies for sale at https://www.boswellbooks.com/book/9781627310789. Good Time Party Girl is discounted 10% now through June 10 and is available for sidewalk pickup or $4 media mail/Boswell delivery.
