VIRTUAL TALK: “The Ghosts of Eden Park” with Karen Abbott
June 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
THE GHOSTS OF EDEN PARK
The Bootleg King, the Women who Pursued Him, and the Murder That Shocked Jazz-Age America
Move over Al Capone. There was once a bigger bootlegger than you. In the early days of Prohibition, George Remus quit practicing law and started trafficking whiskey. By the summer of 1921, The teetotaler owned 35 percent of all the liquor in the United States and the title “King of the Bootleggers.” Remus became a multi-millionaire–with the emphasis on multi. He gave out diamonds and Pontiacs as party favors. That kind of stuff gets you noticed. Not always in a good way. Pioneering prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt decided to bring Remus down. That decision had deadly consequences. Literally. Yep, this true-life, prohibition-era page turner has it all: intrigue, betrayal, greed, violence, madness—and murder.
