Published on 2021-03-14 by crockerfarmpgo Community News

We all know the ditty “Lizzie Borden took an ax….” but few people know the actual facts! Join us for Lizzie Borden: The Mystery Continues, an event to be presented by Christopher Daly and hosted by the Jones Library via Zoom on Tuesday, March 23, at 7 pm. 

Lizzie Borden: The Mystery Continues is a one hour in-depth retelling of the famous double homicide. Extensive research utilizing archival materials, period newspapers and period photographs has been done to create an entertaining, fascinating and informative presentation about America’s favorite mystery. At the end of the presentation, different theories on the murders will be set forth and the question of “Who done it?” will be put to the audience for further discussion and conjecture. 

Christopher Daley has been lecturing all over New England for over 25 years on historical topics of interest and is currently a history teacher in the Silver Lake Regional School System in Kingston, Massachusetts. He holds a B.A. and an M.A. from Bridgewater State University in Political Science and History.  Mr. Daley has served as historical consultant on the Sacco-Vanzetti Case for the Travel Channel’s program “Timetraveling with Brian Unger.” He also appeared in two episodes of the Travel Channel’s “Kindred Spirits” in the capacity of historian on shows about the Lizzie Borden Case.
