(WBNG Binghamton) Gerry Smith talks about an upcoming program for the Broome County Historical Society.

The Broome County Historical Society will host the program, "Seamy Side of the Street--The Book."

It will be on Wednesday, September 18 at 6:30 at the Broome County Public Library.

It covers the release of Gerry Smith's third book by the same title which is co-authored by former Press & Sun-Bulletin reporter George Basler.

It covers the lives of more than a dozen colorful characters from our past such as crooked politicians, a famous madam, bank embezzler and sordid murder cases in Broome County.

Based on previous talks which have been very successful, the book is being published by the Broome County Historical Society.
