Below is an announcement from WCTV’s Book Stew:
Gloucester writer JoeAnn Hart was a child of the 1970s. After dropping out of college, she worked as a server in Stamford, CT, where she met Joe, a Columbia University dropout, and began a two year romance with him. They were part of a small circle of interracial couples, not an easy life, and it proved deadly for JoeAnn’s friend Margo, whose body was found in a shallow grave with two arrow holes in her chest on July 4, 1976. Margo’s boyfriend Howie, accused of the crime, was killed soon after in a suspicious robbery, in a city whose police department was controlled by the Gambino crime family. All these elements make for a fascinating tale in Stamford ’76, which Eileen MacDougall, Book Stew host, explores with the author in the November Book Stew episode.
