The Rejebian Summer Series presents Skip Hollandsworth: The Midnight Assassin
A sweeping narrative history of a terrifying serial killer - America's first - who stalked Austin, Texas in 1885. In December 1884, Austin was terrorized by someone equally as vicious and, in some ways, far more diabolical than London's infamous Jack the Ripper. Before it was all over, at least a dozen men would be arrested in connection with the murders, and the crimes would expose what a newspaper described as "the most extensive and profound scandal ever known in Austin."
With vivid historical detail and novelistic flair, author and Texas Monthly journalist Skip Hollandsworth brings this terrifying saga to life.
Books will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the presentation.
