This month’s TCU class is on Monday, April 3, from 4:30-7:00 p.m.  Join us as we welcome true crime, history, and mystery author Janis Thornton to JCPL as a special keynote speaker and visitor. Janis has written a book on her classmate Olene Emberton’s murder, titled Too Good a Girl, and this mysterious case will be discussed by both Thornton and Mike Medler. Janis also has a new book out on weather history titled The 1965 Palm Sunday Tornadoes in Indiana. Janis will be doing an author meet and greet and book signing from 4:30-5:30 p.m., followed by her speaking to the class beginning at 6 p.m. Books will be available to purchase at the event. Warning: content discussed in these programs may be graphic in nature and disturbing to some. The goal of this program is to provide those attending with information that will help them understand forensic science in criminal investigations, while also adding elements of true crime. There is a limited space for this event so call or visit the library to register.
