The Leopold and Loeb Files: An Intimate Look at One of America’s Most Infamous Crimes

The 1924 murder of fourteen-year-old Bobby Franks by Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, and their defense by Clarence Darrow, raised profound and disturbing questions about social class, criminal psychology, morality, justice and mercy.  Join author Nina Barrett for a talk about why, ninety-five years later, these issues continue to haunt us and remain relevant – today.
