Mystery Author Kathleen Anne Fleming: "Canary in the Coal Chute"

Saturday, June 11, 2016 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Meet accomplished mystery writer Kathleen Anne Fleming and hear about her latest thriller, Canary in the Coal Chute. This novel, which is interwoven with factual chapters of the Lizzie Borden trial of 1893, is a historical, feminist, and true-crime mystery novel. Here Fleming explores what drove Lizzie to murder her parents with a hatchet and how and why she was acquitted. It is a relevant historical study of a serious issue in American homes across the country that plagued the 19th century and persists into the present day. Books will be available for sale and signing.
