Talk at the Nevada State Museum this Friday, Nov. 10th

This Friday evening, Nov. 10th,  at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, I will be giving a presentation on my new book, Gambling on a Dream: The Classic Las Vegas Strip 1956-1973.

I'll be talking about hotels built in those years as well as the architecture, the neon, and the efforts to get the mob out of the hotels in the late 1970s. So if you love Classic Las Vegas and Las Vegas History, you should enjoy this presentation.

The reception begins at 6:30 pm with the talk at 7:00 pm.

Hope to see you there!
