The People's University: Born to Lose: Stanley B. Hoss and the Crime Spree that Gripped a Nation

Saturday, April 7, 2012 | Other Dates  
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

In his new book, Born to Lose: Stanley B. Hoss and the Crime Spree that Gripped a Nation, author Jim Hollock chronicles the true story of Western Pennsylvania's most notorious and remembered criminal case. This book is already being compared to American crime classics such as Capote's In Cold Blood or Wambaugh's The Onion Field. The degree of research that went into compiling this account of a criminal madman is staggering, yet it reads like a fictional suspense thriller. Book signing to follow.
