Thursday, October 25, 6 pm, Miller Library

Local author Karen Dybis returns to the Miller Library to share the story of The Witch of Delray: Rose Veres & Detroit’s Infamous 1930’s Murder Mystery.

During the Great Depression in Detroit, a mysterious murder at a boardinghouse led to an investigation of Hungarian immigrant Rose Veres. Amid accusations of witchcraft, Rose and her son Bill were convicted of the brutal killing and suspected in a dozen more. Their cries of innocence went unheeded – until one lawyer, determined to seek justice, took on the case.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
