Evanston Public Library (Community Meeting Room)
1703 Orrington Ave.
Professor Thomas Simpson discusses his book, Murder and Media in the New Romewhich explores the Fadda Affair, a sensational crime and trial that took place in Rome in the late 1870s, when the bloody killing of a war hero triggered a national spectacle. Sadly, this story of media misrepresentation of tragic events is as timely as ever.
