Frank Meeink's teenage years make underage drinking and teen pregnancy look like a bad homework assignment.
Meeink became a skinhead at thirteen. By eighteen, the South Philadelphian (who Edward Norton portrayed in American History X) was a neo-Nazi recruiter, had his own cable-access show called The Reich, and was finally sent to the cooler for kidnapping and beating a member of a rival skinhead gang.
Cue eventual transformation, redemption, and a damn good read.
Meet Frank Meeink, author of Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead. Seating begins one hour before the event.
