LOOKING FOR LIZZIE
BY DEBRA LAPE
 
Lizzie was a woman without a past from Kentucky, who spent most of her long life creating a future in the only profession available to her, as a madam with at least ten brothels and eight husbands. She lived and worked for over 20 years in Warren G. Harding’s hometown of Marion, Ohio, where his newspaper was often on the house, journalistically and humorously, and where getting ahead was and remains the name of the game. For 50 years, the author’s family covered up the story. From Marion Lizzie also lived in Akron and Stow, passing through Cuyahoga Falls. With tenacity, passion, and an eye for historic details, Debra Lape shares the enticing details of Lizzie’s life.
