The New Hampshire Humanities Council has sponsored mostly local authors to give talks on their books throughout the state. I have been to a handful of them. Some are simply amazing! Some are just OK. I always learn something!
This one is:
Lizzie Borden Took an Axe, Or Did She?
In 1892 Lizzie Borden, a 32-year-old single woman, was officially charged with the murder of her father and stepmother in Fall River, Massachusetts. The events that followed the murder would stir the curiosity of people across the nation. After four official criminal proceedings, Lizzie Borden was acquitted of the murder but the case was not officially reinvestigated by the authorities. To this day the case of Lizzie Borden is a mystery that has inspired television movies, documentaries, cinematic offerings, plays, musicals, poems, websites, blogs, a scholarly journal, college courses, and law school case studies. Annette Holba reviews the facts of the case and explores the evidence that some experts suggest points to Lizzie's guilt and others believe points to Lizzie's innocence. Lizzie's connections to New Hampshire are also discussed.
A few years ago I was researching title to land in Carrol County and Lizzie was part of the chain! Can't wait to find out more!
