Pauline Tabor dead and obituary, the Madam at Six-Twenty-Seven

Tabor writes about her experience running a successful brothel in her hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky, and recounts her many struggles and legal issues in the conservative community.

Join us as we hear the story of one of Bowling Green’s most colorful characters, Pauline Tabor, known for nearly 25 years as Lady of 6-27 Clay Street. As a single mother during the Great Depression of the 1930s, Miss Pauline entered the oldest profession in the world to support herself and her two children. However, she soon learned that being a woman was more profitable than being a “girl”, and she embarked on a career as a brothel owner.

Local author Mary Lucas will talk about her book 6-27 The Lady of Clay Street. This book tells the true story of Pauline Tabor and many interesting stories about her career in prostitution. Event attendees can watch clips of Pauline appearing on The Dick Cavett Show in the early 1970s. There will also be time for audience questions and book signings.
