Alta Asks Live: True Crime with KATHERINE ELLISON & ZACK RUSKIN

Alta Journal True Crime banner

Alta Asks Live: True Crime

True-crime content is enjoying a major surge: in literature, on television, in film, and, of course, on podcasts. What attracts us to relive grisly cases like those of the Zodiac Killer, the Golden State Killer, and the Grim Sleeper? Why have true-crime stories exploded in popularity? Join Alta and Books Inc. as we welcome Mothers & Murderers author Katherine Ellison and Alta contributor Zack Ruskin for a talk on true crime, trends in the genre, and the cases that haunt us. This event will be moderated by Alta digital editor (and true-crime buff) Beth Spotswood.

This event is presented in partnership with Books Inc. You can support them by purchasing books (like Katherine's) from their website:

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
