Story of the famous bootlegger George Remus to be told at Pendleton County Library Print E-mail

The Pendleton County Public Library would like to invite you to listen to Mr. Danny Woodhead tell us a little bit of Pendleton County history on Thursday, August 8, 2013. It seems that when the movie "The Great Gatsby" came out this past year people were intrigued by Jay Gatsby, the main character of the film. Many were reminded of Mr. George Remus, a Cincinnati lawyer who became "The King of the Bootleggers" during Prohibition. It has been claimed that he was the inspiration for F. Scott Fitzgerald's title character in "The Great Gatsby." Mr. George Remus is buried in Riverside Cemetery in Falmouth. Come and find out some local history about him and his connections to this area. You do not have to sign up and the program will start at 4 p.m. in the community room. If you have any questions, please contact Karen Price, adult program coordinator, at 859-654-8535.
