Narrative Nonfiction Book Club: 18 Tiny Deaths
Please join the Falmouth Public Library for our monthly meeting of the Narrative Nonfiction Book Club as we discuss this month's selection 18 Tiny Deaths: The Untold Story of Frances Glessner Lee and the Invention of Modern Forensics by Bruce Goldfarb. Come pick up a copy of the book at the reference desk and then join us on, Thursday, August 3rd at 4pm to share your thoughts!
"Frances Glessner Lee, born a socialite to a wealthy and influential Chicago family in the 1870s, was never meant to have a career, let alone one steeped in death and depravity. Best known for creating the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, Lee developed a system that used the Nutshells dioramas to train law enforcement officers to investigate violent crimes, and her methods are still used today.”
The group will meet in the Hermann meeting room and for those who wish to join us from home, you can join us via Zoom. Registration is required and the Zoom link will be provided upon registration. Register online at the Falmouth Public Library's event calendar or call us at 508-457-2555 x7.
