Michael Lewis “The Coming of Southern Prohibition”

The Arts & Heritage Center of North Augusta presents author Michael Lewis October 9th at 2:30 p.m. Lewis’ newly released book, The Coming of Southern Prohibition, examines the rise and fall of South Carolina’s state-run liquor dispensary system from its emergence in 1892 until statewide prohibition in 1915. The dispensary system, requiring government-owned outlets to bottle and sell all alcohol, began as a way to avoid prohibition and enrich government coffers.
