Our current writer-in-residence, Dr. Donna Decker, will present “Intentional Venom,” a program on making sense of mass killings, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, 2019. She will discuss the award-winning Dancing in Red Shoes Will Kill You, her book about the 1989 Montreal Massacre, the worst mass shooting in Canadian history. Decker will discuss her research, including interviews with victims’ families and survivors, her choice to write about a real-life event as fiction, and her university course on school shootings.
Donna is Professor of English and Director of the Women in Leadership Program at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire.
This event is part of the Summer Library Program, a Timberland Regional Library district-wide program.
