Carr to appear at Tatnuck Bookseller Sunday, May 19

Rifleman coverWestborough – Bestselling author, longtime Boston Herald columnist and radio show host Howie Carr will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Sunday, May 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. to sign copies of his new book, “Rifleman – the Untold Story of Stephen Flemmi, Whitey Bulger's Partner.”

For 40 years, Stevie “the Rifleman” Flemmi was one of the most feared gangsters in Boston, and for much of that time, he was the partner of Whitey Bulger, the 16-year fugitive with a $2 million reward on his head who was captured in 2011. Flemmi has been convicted of 10 murders and took the Fifth Amendment when asked about 10 others. “Rifleman” is the story of Flemmi” s life of crime, as told to federal and state law-enforcement after he pleaded guilty in 2003. Supplementing the text are nearly 300 photographs from Carr's own collection – a treasure trove of mug shots and noir-style pictures of slain gunmen, as well as never-before-seen wanted posters and FBI documents.

The event is open to the public. Tatnuck Bookseller is located in the Westborough Shopping Center, Route 9 and Lyman Street.
