On June 22, 1954, teenage friends Juliet Hulme — later known as best-selling crime author Anne Perry — and Pauline Parker put their plan to kill Hulme’s mother into motion, rocking New Zealand society to its core and making headlines around the world. Their story was subsequently fictionalized in Peter Jackson’s directorial Academy Award nominated debut Heavenly Creatures.
Peter Graham’s book is a riveting account of the events that led up to the murder, the trial and the lives of the murderesses afterward.
The book club will meet to discuss Anne Perry and The Murder of The Century on Thursday, March 27 in Conference Room 1 at 7 p.m. For more information, contact Ana Elisa at email@example.com or call 202-671-3122.
