King of the Bootleggers: The Rise, Fall and Betrayal of George Remus
George Remus was the biggest bootlegger of the Prohibition era, but his reign was short-lived. How did it all come crashing down around him? Author Karen Abbott tells Remus’s roller-coaster story in The Ghosts of Eden Park, tracing his rise to the top of the bootlegging racket, his imprisonment, his wife’s betrayal, and the saga’s fatal finale.
A book signing will follow the presentation.
