Join us on January 7, 2016 when our speaker will be David Kulczyk,
a fringe history maven.
His topic? California’s Deadliest Women: Dangerous Dames and Murderous Moms, which also happens to be the title of his newest nonfiction book.
Think true stories from the National Enquirer that retain respect for the victims. Included is our local claim to infamy: Clovis’ Larissa Schuster who killed her husband with acid sold by her own chemical company.
