     Come hear author Tobin Buhk speak on Dark Corners of Michigan History - a true crime adventure!

     Visit some of Michigan’s creepiest locations in this photographic expedition of historic prisons and county jails. Take a trip back in time and venture inside the old Detroit House of Corrections, the State Penitentiary at Jackson and several county jails. Eavesdrop on inmates working off the “hard labor” portion of their sentences in the prison shops, enter a cellblock, and learn about late 19th century prison life. Meet the wardens, turnkeys, keepers, sheriffs and their most infamous residents. (Pardonable Matricide; The Lonely Hearths Killers; Michigan’s Strychnine Saint)

     Tobin T. Buhk is a freelance author specializing in historic true crime. To research his first book, Cause of Death, he volunteered in a county morgue. His subsequent true-crime publications include Skeletons in the Closet, True Crime in the Civil War, and Poisoning the Pecks of Grand Rapids. Mr. Buhk lectures frequently on historic crime. Join us at Leighton Township Library on Wednesday, October 12 at 6:30 pm to hear his latest true crime adventures.
