GRANVILLE — The Granville Branch Library will have a program, “Desperadoes: Notorious Outlaws of Early Illinois” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 5 at the library in Granville.

Historian and author John Hallwas dives into Illinois’ notorious past, focusing on early law enforcement, vigilantes, lynching and outlaws through dozens of period images, featuring desperadoes, jails and wanted posters.

Author of “Dime Novel Desperadoes,” Hallwas is professor emeritus at Western Illinois University where he teaches writing. Hallwas holds two degrees from Western Illinois University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Florida.

“Desperadoes: Notorious Outlaws of Early Illinois” is the second program in the
2014-2015 Putnam County Public Library District humanities program series, “Traces & Byways Discovered.” For more information, call the Granville Branch Library at (815) 339-2038.

Funding for the program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.
