America's Most Wanted Gangster: Whitey Bulger
Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy in conversation with
The New York Times’
Dan Barry

Tuesday, October 29 | 7:30 pm

One of American’s most wanted gangsters alive today, James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger is a notorious alleged FBI informant and brutal murderer who ran an underworld empire in South Boston for over 20 years. Known for his insatiable hunger for power and control, Bulger was the inspiration for Jack Nicholson’s character Francis “Frank” Costello in The Departed (2006).

In Whitey Bulger: America’s Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt That Brought Him to Justice, award-winning Boston Globe reporters Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy follow Whitey’s extraordinary criminal career, exploring the truth behind the 16-year manhunt that climaxed in Whitey’s dramatic capture in Santa Monica in June 2011, and give exclusive insight on his thoughts in jail awaiting his June 2013 trial.

Join The New York Times reporter and columnist Dan Barry in conversation with Cullen and Murphy to discuss their definitive and vivid account of Whitey’s life in this riveting biography.
