Trials and Tribulations: Examining the Borden Case with Judge Mark Lawton



Please join us at the Bridgewater Public Library on Monday, May 4th at 6:30p.m. for a One Book One Community program: Trials and Tribulations: Examining the Borden Case with Judge Mark Lawton. Judge Lawton is a retired juvenile courts judge for Suffolk County.

Bridgewater’s current OBOC selection is: Cold Case to Case Closed: Lizbeth Borden, a historical novel by Richard Little and Beverley Folstad. It focuses on the infamous double murder case in Fall River in 1892. Andrew Jackson Borden and his second wife, Abby Borden, were murdered in their own home. Their daughter, Lizzie, was the prime suspect. Eventually acquitted in the courtroom, she was condemned in the Court of Public Opinion. Many books have been written about the case.


This is the 10th anniversary of Bridgewater’s One Book One Community partnership. Additional information about Cold Case to Case Closed and the OBOC program can be found on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/Bridgewater-One-Book-One Community/1409719439265716
