A Case for Solomon by Margaret Cutright

When: Wed., Aug. 22, 7 p.m. 2012
Phone: 704-525-9239
Price: Free
Maraget Cutright tells a gripping historical mystery, distilled from a trove of personal and archival research. The story of Bobby Dunbar, fought over by competing New Orleans tabloids, the courts, and the citizenry of two states, offers a case study in yellow journalism, emergent forensic science, and criminal justice in the turn-of-the-century American South. It is a drama of raw poverty and power and an exposé of how that era defined and defended motherhood, childhood, and community. And as always, events at Park Road Books are free and open to the public.
