Remembering Henry Hill
Author: January is Mob Month
Every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in the month of January, Clark County Library examines the popular culture and history of organized crime with a series of programs featuring former mobsters, law enforcement officials, educators, authors, journalists and eye witnesses-- those who've survived, remembered, were investigated or conducted investigations during the height of Mob influence in Las Vegas and throughout America.
Friends and associates will reminisce about Henry Hill, who passed away in Los Angeles during the summer of 2012 and was reknown for the portrayal of his criminal life in the movie GoodFellas. Henry's widow Lisa, and company will discuss the life of a wiseguy in and out of the Mob, their involvement with Henry, and lessons learned from the influences of organized crime. The discussion will include a screening of a never-before-seen video interview with Henry just days before his untimely death.
Author Vito Colucci is the moderator for the panel. His latest book, Rogue Town is co-authored with Dennis Griffin, about his undercover work with the FBI to bust the mob in Stamford, CT. His first book, Inside The Private Eyes Of A P.I., is an autobiography about his life as a private investigator.
