Karen Abbott – The Ghosts of Eden Park

Left Bank Books welcomes Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Sin in the Second City and Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy, who will sign and discuss her new book The Ghosts of Eden Park.

In the early days of Prohibition, long before Al Capone became a household name, a German immigrant named George Remus quits practicing law and starts trafficking whiskey. Within two years he’s a multi-millionaire. The press calls him “King of the Bootleggers,” writing breathless stories about the Gatsby-esque events he and his glamorous second wife, Imogene, host at their Cincinnati mansion, with party favors ranging from diamond jewelry for the men to brand-new cars for the women. By the summer of 1921, Remus owns 35 percent of all the liquor in the United States. Pioneering prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt is determined to bring him down.

This event is open to the public, but proof of purchase of The Ghosts of Eden Park from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
