In 1940, with German U-boats blockading all commerce across the Atlantic Ocean, a fireball at the Crown Cork and Seal factory lit the sky over Baltimore. The newspapers said that you could see its glow from Philadelphia. Rumors of Nazi sabotage led to an FBI investigation and pulled an entire industry into the national security web as America stood on the brink of war.

 Join us for the release of the new book CORK WARS: INTRIGUE AND INDUSTRY IN WORLD WAR II in the Creative Alliance Marquee Lounge! Author David Taylor will present his new book joined by Kiley Kraskousas (director FlowState Films) and Amy Johanson (film researcher), who helped to create several short films to accompany the book.
