Book Talk: The Axeman of New Orleans

Thu, Nov 29, 2018
4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

The public is invited to a book talk by Miriam Davis, author of The Axeman of New Orleans: The True Story.

From 1910 to 1919, New Orleans suffered at the hands of its very own Jack the Ripper–style killer. The Axeman repeatedly broke into the homes of Italian grocers in the dead of night, leaving his victims in a pool of blood. Iorlando Jordano, an innocent Italian grocer, and his teenaged son Frank were wrongly accused of one of those murders; corrupt officials convicted them with coerced testimony. In The Axeman of New Orleans, Davis tells the story of the search for the Axeman and of the eventual exoneration of the innocent Jordanos. She proves that the person mostly widely suspected of being the Axeman was not the killer. She also shows what few have suspected—that the Axeman continued killing after leaving New Orleans in 1919.

Miriam C. Davis has an MA in medieval archaeology from the University of York and a Ph.D. in medieval history from the University of California, Santa Barbara. In addition to her scholarly publications, Miriam has written for the popular press on archaeology, history, and travel and has lectured throughout the U.S., Great Britain, and Israel. She is the author of Dame Kathleen Kenyon: Digging Up the Holy Land, a biography of the most important female archeologist of the twentieth century.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn.
