Peters_Infamous coverShawn Francis Peters will be at the New Richland Library on Thursday, April 19 at 6:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of his new book, The Infamous Harry Hayward: A True Account of Murder and Mesmerism in Gilded Age Minneapolis.


Shawn Francis Peters’s spellbinding story of the “Minneapolis Monster” details the trial of Harry Hayward—a serial seducer and schemer deemed a “Svengali,” a “lunatic,” and a “man without a soul.” His life story, told in full for the first time here, unfolds a transfixing tale of one of the most notorious criminals in America during the Gilded Age.


"At last, a great nonfiction storyteller has given this terrifying murderer the well-researched and vividly written treatment he deserves. The Infamous Harry Hayward places readers inside the disordered mind of a Victorian era killer—and won’t let them go." —Jack El-Hai, author of The Nazi and the Psychiatrist and The Lobotomist
