In 1892, Lizzie Borden found herself the accused murderer of her father and stepmother.  Although she was acquitted of all charges, rumor mills and gossipmongers relentlessly pursued her the rest of her life.  Over a century later, the name Lizzie Borden still conjures the image of an axe-wielding murderess. In this presentation in the library, Tricia Kelly hopes to peel away decades of hearsay, misinformation, and media lies to reveal the real Lizzie Borden of Fall River.
