FLORENCE — The Pinal County Historical Society is offering readers four more Book Club meetings coming up through June.
Join on Zoom on March 2 at 6 p.m. to discuss “The Trunk Murderess: Winnie Ruth Judd” by Jana Bommersbach. This book tells the story of Arizona’s most famous female murderer. Don’t miss out on a great discussion of this sensationalized Depression-era crime and its complexities.
“I have really enjoyed reading these books,” said PCHS Executive Director Stephanie Joyner, “and PCHS Museum’s Book Club has challenged me to read more. I encourage everyone to pick up a copy of any of the Book Club selections and join the Zoom discussion. We have something for everyone over the next four months, including a true crime book, a book about horses, creative nonfiction, and a work of fiction that takes place in territorial Arizona. Two of our upcoming Book Club meeting have author participation as well!”
All past and future Book Club books are available for purchase in PCHS Museum’s gift shop at 715 S. Main St. in Florence, and through Brown Paper Tickets. Museum members purchasing the book onsite receive a 10% discount on all gift shop purchases. Donations are appreciated to participate in the Zoom Book Club meeting.
