Meet Bob Calhoun, author of The Murders That Made Us on Wednesday, October 20 at 7:00 PM on Zoom! From its earliest days when vigilantes hung perps from downtown buildings to the Zodiac Killer and the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, murder and mayhem have shaped San Francisco into the political and economic force that she is today. The Murders That Made Us tells a 170-year saga of madness, corruption, and death, one crime at a time.
Bob Calhoun is a San Francisco Bay Area author and journalist. Since 2015, he has recounted his city’s most gruesome and lurid events in his regular SF Weekly column, Yesterday’s Crimes. His punk wrestling memoir, Beer, Blood & Cornmeal: Seven Years of Incredibly Strange Wrestling, is a national bestseller. Bob’s work has also appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Salon.com, RogerEbert.com, Gawker, and Bold Italic.
