Free Signing for Gold Coast Madam March 7 at 6pm
Now living a quiet life of a typical Florida retiree (church, walks, grandchildren), Rose Laws, a vibrant 77-year-old, is itching to tell you her incredible life story of hardships, heartache, triumphs, and fun--especially about the decades she spent sexing up Chicago. She started arranging dates for men with women in the 1960s to earn enough money to get her children out of a brutal orphanage they were put in after she left a violent marriage. She moved on to running the Addison Motel, offering the area's first advertised 4-hour rates. She ultimately moved downtown, went first class, and amassed a 5,000-person client list of the city and country's rich and powerful (politicians, judges, lawyers, pro athletes, movie stars, business tycoons, and mobsters), earning herself the media nickname "Gold Coast Madam." Take this historical opportunity to meet Rose Laws and ask her all about her reign as perhaps Chicago's most famous madam ever. Rose Laws and co-author Dianna Harris will do short readings from their book, take questions, and autograph copies.
