November 13th | 7:00 p.m.
Karen Abbott masterfully weaves together the epic true crime story of the infamous bootlegger George Remus—who owned 35% of all the liquor in the United States in 1921, the excesses and absurdities of the Jazz Age, the infinite human capacity to deceive, and the murder that shocked the nation.
Abbott is the New York Times bestselling author of Sin in the Second City, American Rose (an Indie Next pick), and, most recently, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy, named one of the best books of 2014 by Library Journal, The Christian Science Monitor, and Amazon. A native of Philadelphia, she now lives in New York City.
