The First Coast Connect Book Club

Our First Coast Connect Book Club pick this month is I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt.

Our facilitator Stacey Goldring told us about the book and defined some of the mob terms that were used.

A film adaptation of the book, called The Irishman, will be released in theaters and on Netflix this fall. The film is directed by Martin Scorsese and stars Robert DeNiro as Frank Sheeran, Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa, and Joe Pesci as Russell Bufalino.
