Title: The Story of Lizzie Borden: Special Event for Adults
Contact: Sarah,
Location: Jacksonville Public Library Meeting Room
Description: A hot day in August. Tempers fray in the oppressive humidity. Anger explodes into tragedy. The story of Lizzie Borden has become one of the most intriguing mysteries of our nation's past. But what really happened on that muggy morning? Sylvia Shults, collector of history and true ghost stories, takes us back in time to the August day that saw the brutal axe murders of Andrew and Abby Borden, and asks the question...did Lizzie really give her mother forty whacks, and her father forty-one?
