Do you have an hour to kill?
True crime is not a modern phenomenon--it dates all the way back to the Elizabethan era! From historic tales of murder and mayhem to police memoirs and serial killer profiles, people read true crime for any number of reasons: a fascination with the dark side of human nature, vicarious thrills, or a need to understand frightening people and situations.
Join us at our NEW True Crime Book Club on the second Thursday of each month. We’ll meet in the reading room of the Readers’ Services department from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. Our first meeting takes place on June 14, 2018.
June’s True Crime Book Club pick is Truman Capote’s masterpiece In Cold Blood, touted as the first “novelistic” work in the true crime genre. Reserve a copy here.
