The Prohibition Hangover Garrett Peck talked about his book The Prohibition Hangover: Alcohol in America from Demon Rum to Cult Cabernet (Rutgers University Press; August 5, 2009). In his book he explores the often-contradictory social history of alcohol in America, from the end of Prohibition in 1933 to the 21st century, and provides a panoramic assessment of alcohol in American culture and history.

He was interviewed at the 32nd Annual National Press Club Book Fair and Authors' Night, a fundraiser for the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library held Tuesday, November 17, 2009 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. close
