The Roaring Twenties unfolded in unexpected ways, with airplanes landing in Oak Bluffs Harbor. Young women, known as Flappers, expressed their independence from the Victorian era. Fishermen were lured into ferrying bootleg booze to Vineyard shores.
A lot was going on in the 1920s.
To learn more about this exciting era from a century ago come to Thomas Dresser's book talk, Martha’s Vineyard in the Roaring Twenties, Radicals and Rascals, where he tells the story. And the story sounds remarkably similar to many situations we’re facing today.
