True Crime Book Club

We will be reading The Trial of Lizzie Borden. Receive 15% off your copy by getting it at Books Around the Corner. The attending members have spoken and the June/July book will be The Trial of Lizzie Borden. The tale of Lizzie Borden and fucked up little song, is a case that fascinated my young murderino brain. I never read much about the trial, just mostly spent time on the internet reading about the crime scene and looking at the crime scene photos. Eeek! Needless to say I am excited to read about this trial and the media uproar it caused. Feel free to bring snacks or wine! [see also the Facebook event page]
