Beyond” by Richard C. Lindberg

Thursday, June 8
1:30pm – 2:30pm

True crime author Rich Lindberg
presents a fascinating montage
of Gaslight Era serial killers, scoundrels, and
murderers. A veritable rogues’ gallery will pass in
review, including H.H. Holmes (the original Devil
in the White City), matrimonial swindlers, and
murderers Johann Hoch and Belle Gunness plus the
enduring mystery of Lizzie Borden of Fall River and
Amy Archer Gilligan.
