Holly Metz is the author of the recently published—and critically acclaimed—"Killing the Poormaster: A Saga of Poverty, Corruption, and Murder in the Great Depression." "Killing the Poormaster" chronicles the events that led up to—and followed—the death of Harry Barck, a poormaster who was granted the authority to decide who would and would not receive public aid in Hoboken, New Jersey. Unemployed mason Joe Scutellaro was said to have stabbed Barck in the heart with a paper spike after the poormaster suggested that Scutellaro’s wife prostitute herself on the streets rather than ask the city for aid. News of the poormaster's death electrified the city, made headlines nationwide, and led to a sensational trial. Ms. Metz will have copies of her book available for purchase and for signing. Admission to the program is free.
