Lizzie Borden: Did She Do It?
October 4th @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
In 1892 a young woman named Lizzie Borden found herself the accused murderer of her father and stepmother. Although she was acquitted of all charges, rumor mills and gossipmongers relentlessly pursued her for the rest of her life. Over a century later, the name Lizzie Borden still conjures the image of an ax-wielding murderess. In this presentation, Tricia L. Kelly hopes to peel away decades of hearsay, misinformation, and media lies to reveal the real Lizzie Borden of Fall River. The presentation will be held in the White Oak Room.
