Dear colleagues, I am pleased to announce a new exhibit in the Harvard Law School Library: Extra! Extra! Read All About It: A Tale of True Crime<http://www.law.harvard.edu/library/special/exhibitions/extra!-extra!-read-all-about-it.html>. Featuring materials from the Library's Historical & Special Collections, this exhibit examines a short chapter in the United States' history of true crime narratives. Topics include: serialized true crime literature, crime photography in newspapers, and the representation of family life in the media's coverage of the Sacco and Vanzetti case. Highlights from the exhibit include an early example of an Associated Press Wirephoto, a photograph album compiled by an expert witness in the Lindbergh kidnapping case, and materials from the Library's collection of Wood Detective Agency Records, the first private detective agency in New England. The exhibit was curated by Lesley Schoenfeld, Historical & Special Collections, Harvard Law School Library, with contributions from Michele Fazio, Assistant Professor of English, University of North Carolina at Pembroke. It is on view daily 9 to 5 in the Library's Caspersen Room through April 26, 2013. Please come visit if you are in the area! Best wishes, Karen Beck Karen S.
