Join author Bruce Mowday for the inside story of the Johnston Gang!

During his presentation, Mr. Mowday will present the research for his book Jailing the Johnston Gang: Bringing Serial Murderers to Justice.  

   "Pennsylvania's Johnston Gang, led by Bruce Johnston, Sr. and his brothers Norman and David, netted millions through a prolific burglary ring during the 1960s and '70s. But in 1978, fearing that younger members of the gang were going to rat them out to the authorities, the brothers killed four teenagers and nearly killed Bruce Sr.'s own son. This book draws on personal interviews with investigators, attorneys, and even former gang members to detail how the combined efforts of federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies brought the brothers to justice.".

This free program will take place on Thursday, November 8 at 7:00 pm at the Highland Township Building.  After the program, Mr. Mowday will be available for a book-signing. 

Sign up today!  Reservations strongly suggested for this incredible program about a legendary local crime story!
