Join us for an evening with author Eugene Milhizer on Wednesday, August 4, at 6pm. His new book, Dissecting Anatomy of a Murder, examines and analyzes both the book and film, Anatomy of a Murder, in significant detail. It tells the fascinating story of its author, John Voelker and recounts the 1952 murder in Big Bay, Michigan. It also chronicles the actual, high-profile murder trial, in which Voelker served as defense counsel and explains how he adapted this real-life trial into a fictional form as a great novel and looks back on the production of the groundbreaking film that his novel inspired. The author will have books on hand for sale and signing.

Registration is required and can be found at or by calling 906-482-4570
