Calling all true crime enthusiasts and those looking to take a stab at it!

True Crime Book Discussion meets for online discussions via Zoom. Registered patrons will receive an email the day before the program with the meeting ID and password for joining the event.

Book Synopsis: Using court transcripts, police reports, individual reporting and exclusive interviews, this page-turning true crime story recounts the attempted murder of 12-year-old Bella Leutner at the hands of two girls who believed they needed a sacrifice to keep Slenderman--a figure born on the internet--at bay.
