Bourbonnais Public Library hosts Lizzie Borden Presentation October 4th

The Bourbonnais Public Library welcomes you to Lizzie Borden: Did she do it? Monday, October 4 at 6:30 pm in the White Oak Room. 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.

Who was Lizzie Borden?
“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.”
