Professor Wendy Gamber's reading The Body in the Resevoir

Wendy Gamber, Professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University, is reading The Body in the Reservoir: Murder & Sensationalism in the South (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2008) by Michael Ayers Trotti. 

“This is a terrific book about murder, gender, sexuality, race, and mass culture in Richmond, Virginia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Because I’m writing a book about an alleged (and probably actual) Indianapolis murderess, The Body in the Reservoir is a must-read for me.”
