Description

On the foggy, cold morning of February 1, 1896, a boy came upon what he thought was a pile of clothes. It was soon discovered to be the headless body of a young woman, brutally butchered and discarded. She was found just across the river from one of the largest cities in the country, Cincinnati, Ohio. Soon the authorities, the newspapers, and the public were obsessed with discovering the girl's identity and finding the killer. Historian Andrew Young re-creates late nineteenth-century and ragtime music played alongside prostitution, temperance, racism, homelessness, the rise of corporations, and the women's rights movement.

Bring your lunch and enjoy great conversation at the Brown Bag Book Club! Water and snacks provided.

New members welcome!
