Garret Peck, author of “Prohibition in Washington, D.C.: How Dry We Weren’t,” will be having an author talk about his book at the Arlington County Public Library (1015 N. Quincy Street) on Thursday from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Peck’s book is a short history on how Prohibition “unraveled” in D.C. and includes 80 historic and modern images, 11 vintage cocktail recipes and five neighborhood maps. This is Peck’s second book and a follow-up to his first, “The Prohibition Hangover: Alcohol in America from Demon Rum to Cult Cabernet.”

  • The author event will actually be at Arlington Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy Street in Arlington, which is between the Virginia Square and Ballston Metro stations on the Orange Line. There is parking available. (The listed location on Clarendon Blvd. is more than a mile away from Central Library, so please don’t go there!)
