LDHS presents a free talk by Daryl Ashby at the Ladysmith Eagles Hall.
Ashby, author of 85 Grams: Art Williams — Drug Czar, and the Nobody’s Boy: Ralph Harris, the Northern Connection, will expose the lives of a handful of men who engineered the covert pipeline that funnelled the majority of illicit drugs into the Pacific Northwest over the past 50 years.
Where Art Williams managed to avoid conviction until his disappearance in late 1977, Ralph Harris worked beneath the authority’s radar. Ashby’s guest will offer insights as one of the largest couriers of Central/South American cartel drugs.
