Today, we step back to Detroit in the 1930s at a bar that was open (well, as an ice cream shop during the prohibition part) to talk to Karen Dybis.
She’s an author of a few books, but her latest promises from what we’ve seen to be a great read. “The Witch of Delray: Rose Veres & Detroit’s Infamous 1930s Murder Mystery” is a true crime book that’s set in Detroit’s Delray neighborhood.
Dybis is a former newspaper reporter, and utilized that background as well as her colorful style paint a picture of a city and a boarding house where, as she says, renters walk in and pine boxes come out.
So join Sven Gustafson for a great conversation on the back patio of Nancy Whiskey’s.
