The Crime of the Century and the Jefferson Market Library


“This man is Harry Thaw, charged with murder,” said Capt. Hodgins, in a voice which rang through the courtroom.

It was June 1906 in the Jefferson Market Court House and these words heralded the start of the trial for the murder that was proclaimed the Crime of the Century! (It was 90 years before O.J. Simpson took that title away).

The Jefferson Market Court House is now the Jefferson Market branch library and we are proud to present an author reading and discussion of the new book, American Eve: Evelyn Nesbit, Stanford White. the Birth of the "It" Girl, and the Crime of the Century by Paula Uruburu.

The event takes place Wednesday June 10 at 6:30pm at - where else? - the Jefferson Market branch library!
