Lunch and Learn: Attraction to Crime and Criminals presented by Amanda Vicary, IWU Assistant Professor of Psychology

Thu Feb 9 12:10:00 2017

Exploring people’s interest in crime stories and attraction to prisoners, this talk will explore the reasons behind women’s interest in the true-crime book genre, including why it is more appealing to women than it is to men. A similar topic—people writing to prison inmates for romantic purposes—also will be discussed.

Bring your brown bag lunch to the Museum’s series, featuring engaging and enlightening topics for discussion. Join us the second Thursday of every month from September through May for a new topic to explore and discuss. The programs are held in the Museum’s Governor Fifer Courtroom from 12:10-12:40 p.m. These programs are free and open to the public and sponsored by Illinois Wesleyan University, the McLean County Museum of History, and the Collaborative Solutions Institute.
