Bob Calhoun will be giving talk on The Murders That Made Us and how crime, murder, and mayhem shaped the San Francisco Bay Area. The talk is being hosted by the wonderful historians and archivists of the California Historical Society on Tuesday May 10th at 5:30 p.m. It's all free and virtual via Zoom so please register here, and with it's 5:30 p.m. start time, it's kind of like a happy hour. Feel free to pour yourself whatever you want while you watch.
Rumor has it that Bob's created a whole PowerPoint presentation for this event, only instead of pie charts showing market penetration and the usual jazz one sees on PowerPoint slides, Bob will be talking about cold-blooded MURDER and winding you through the Bay Area's bloody history from its vigilante origins to how one of the most gruesome incidents of this still-young-century launched today's political dynasties. Again, here's how to register, and did I mention it's FREE? You don't even have to be in the great state of California to sign up.
Pssst. I'm also hearing talk that this thing could be carried by C-SPAN, so it's a good thing that Bob bought all these fancy lights so he can go all James Wong Howe on this thing. Please, wish him luck on figuring out the whole key light/fill light thing.
See you on the Zooms!
