Murder & Mayhem on Ohio's Rails-Author Visit

Steubenville-Schiappa Branch Library

Date: Tuesday, November 13, 2018
From: 6:00:00 PM

   Author Jane Ann Turzillo of Akron, Ohio will present and sign copies of her book, Murder & Mayhem on Ohio’s Rails.  
 
   Ride Ohio’s rails with some of the bravest trainmen and most vicious killers and robbers to ever roll down the tracks. The West may have had Jesse James and Butch Cassidy, but Ohio had its own brand of train robbers. Discover how Alvin Karpis knocked off an Erie Railroad train  and escaped with $34,000. Learn about the first peacetime train holdup that took place in North Bend when thieves derailed the Kate Jackson, robbed its passengers and blew the Adam’s Express safe. Make no mistake–railroading was a dangerous job in bygone days.
