RAHS presents "Not All Sugar & Spice: Bad Women of the Mitten"

Thu., April 4, 7 p.m.

RAHS presents "Not All Sugar & Spice: Bad Women of the Mitten" with true crime novelists Mardi Link on Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m at the Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Olde Towne Rd. "Not All Sugar & Spice: Bad Women of the Mitten," looks at four infamous Michigan female criminals: Charlotte Peterson (of the “Anatomy of a Murder” case), Bernardine Dohr (of the Weathermen), Stella Lipinska (nun killer from my Michigan Notable Book, "Isadore’s Secret"), and Debbie Parmentier (once on Michigan’s most wanted list). What makes a good Michigan woman turn bad? This talk and slide show takes a look at these women criminals and details their backgrounds, the possible motives for their crimes, and their just (or not) punishments. Mardi Link's first book, "When Evil Came to Good Hart," was published in 2008 by the University of Michigan Press and spent four months on the Heartland Bestseller List. Her second book, "Isadore's Secret," was published in 2009, also by the University of Michigan Press, and chronicles the mysterious disappearance of a Felician nun from her convent in 1907. It was named a Michigan Notable Book, a Great Lakes Great Read, and also spent several months on the Heartland Bestseller List. Link made the New York Times Bestseller list with her book, "Wicked Takes the Witness Stand," but may be best known for her first memoir, "Bootstrapper." The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Books written by Mardi Link may be available to purchase at this program. Free
