"A Case for Solomon: Bobby Dunbar and the Kidnapping That Haunted a Nation" is a gripping historical mystery, distilled from a trove of personal and archival research. The story of the kidnapping of Bobby Dunbar, fought over by competing New Orleans tabloids, the courts and the citizenry of two states, offers a case study in yellow journalism, emergent forensic science, and criminal justice in the turn-of-the-century American South. This event is a reading and book signing featuring the book's authors Tal McThenia and Margaret Dunbar.
