Laverne Copeland, a dedicated lab technician, has completed her new book “The Old Bootleg Times”: a descriptive and enjoyable tale that takes the reader down to “The Old Shot House”, a secret location to put aside worries of the day and enjoy the pleasures life has to give.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lavern Copeland’s entertaining tale dates back to the year 1953. A baby girl named Laverne was born to parents during hard times and was later raised by her grandmother.

Her grandmother, known to all as Big Momma, had to quit school at a young age to help support a big family. Sewing was one of her passions; she could make a suit pattern out of newspaper.

For a living, Big Momma sewed and also sold the “old corn whiskey”, made of corn, sugar, and yeast. Follow Lavern and Big Momma to the “shot house”, which was the secret place to eat, drink, and be merry.

Readers who wish to experience this charming work can purchase “The Old Bootleg Times” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
