Colorado Women: Hell's Swift Alley

The Women of Hell's Swift Alley

Denver was a wide-open town well into the 1890’s and very much living up to its reputation as the Wild West. Author Randi Samuelson-Brown will lead a spirited discussion on the 1890's world of prostitution, licit and illicit drugs, bad whiskey recipes and the saloon and brothel culture that flourished in Colorado. Denver’s Market Street wasn’t referred to as “Hell’s Swift Alley” without reason! A racy and lively look into the past, some of the material and resulting discussions may not be suitable for children. Books available for sale and signing.
