“Murder & Mayhem in MetroWest Boston” Book Launch

November 4 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

Presenters: Kevin A. Swope and James L. Parr

Hybrid program

MetroWest is known for its rolling farmland, winding rivers and quaint white churches facing green town commons. But looks can be deceiving. Tales from these small towns captured headlines and shocked readers across the state with lurid details of betrayal, cruelty, greed and murder. Nina Danforth, spurred on by love and jealousy, made a midnight call to the home of Andrew Emery in Framingham seeking revenge. The murder of spinster Mabel Page in Weston sent a man to the electric chair, and forty years before Lizzie Borden, the grisly axe murder of a husband and wife sent shock waves through the terrified town of Natick. Authors James L. Parr and Kevin A. Swope reveal the stories behind these crimes and the motives of the desperate criminals who perpetrated them.

This program is supported by a grant from the Bridge Street Fund, a special initiative of Mass Humanities.
