    "Sheilah Roberts Lukins has worked her way through a rich archive to present a very well researched and documented local history of alcohol that is tough to put down. I learned the origins of the common expressions such as 'to give a toast.' I learned why so many women have managed drinking establishments. And I learned the makeup of the notorious 'Screech-in' ceremony--Lukin's writing on the subject was worthy of an episode of The Rick Mercer Report.".
