The Aiken County Historical Museum will be hosting three Summer HOT Lectures (History On Tap).

On Tuesday August 16th, Kathryn Smith returns to Aiken to discuss her latest book "Baptists and Bootleggers: A Prohibition Expedition Through the South...with Cocktail Recipes". The book takes you to major cities and small towns (including Aiken County), all of which struggled between the Baptists and their teetotaling allies who preached temperance and the bootleggers who got rich providing what their customers couldn't buy legally. Kathryn Smith's other works include "The Gatekeeper: Missy LeHand, FDR and the Partnership that Defined a Presidency", and "Gertie, the biography of Aiken native Gertrude Sanford Legendre".

The Summer HOT Lectures will take place on the Museum grounds or inside the Museum Ballroom (weather depending). Tickets are $30 for each lecture and include dinner provided by Blue Collard Catering along with beer and wine. Each Summer HOT event begins at 6 pm with dinner and the talk will follow at 6:30 pm.

The Summer HOT Lecture Series is scheduled for June 14, July 12 and August 16.
