Shortfall: Family Secrets, Financial Collapse, and a Hidden History of American Banking by Alice Echols
Join Pikes Peak Library District's Special Collections and award winning author and historian Alice Echols at an event celebrating her new nonfiction book, Shortfall: Family Secrets, Financial Collapse, and a Hidden History of American Banking—the true story of how her grandfather made off with more than $20 million (in today's dollars) of Colorado Springs depositors' money during the 1930s. Echols will describe the local scandal and the secret family history she uncovered after more than a decade of research.
