7:00 PM: Queen City Gothic
Queen City Gothic author JT Townsend will be joining us in the Event Center to take us on a sinister descent into the dark side of Cincinnati history. Based on his experience exhuming cold cases and quizzing the detectives haunted by them, Townsend examines the most enigmatic aspects of a homicide investigation...rumor, coincidence, premonition, and incompetence. In this riveting program, learn how an armchair detective confronts a fragile chain of circumstantial evidence and spins it into a strong rope with many strands, turning the possibility of blame into the probability of guilt.
