Note: Join us in the underground catacombs at Binny’s Lakeview for the official Chicago launch of Karen Abbott’s latest page turner, The Ghosts of Eden Park. Abbott shares insight into her book which tells the true story of George Remus, America’s most successful bootlegger and real-life inspiration for Jay Gatsby. Remus was riding high until his wife fell in love with the very federal agent who put him in jail, sparking a feud that reached the highest levels of government - and that could only end in murder. $40 ticket price includes a conversation with me in the catacombs, a copy of The Ghosts of Eden Park, and various beer and liquor tastings. Net proceeds benefit the Chicago Brewseum.
