Afternoon Book Group - The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper, by Hallie Rubenhold

Afternoon Book Group - The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper, by Hallie Rubenhold In-Person

Just in time for Halloween - a story about the victims of Jack the Ripper!

Polly, Annie, Elizabeth, Catherine and Mary-Jane are famous for the same thing, though they never met. They came from Fleet Street, Knightsbridge, Wolverhampton, Sweden and Wales. They wrote ballads, ran coffee houses, lived on country estates, they breathed ink-dust from printing presses and escaped people-traffickers.

What they had in common was the year of their murders: 1888.

Their murderer was never identified, but the name created for him by the press has become far more famous than any of these five women.

In this devastating narrative of five lives, historian Hallie Rubenhold finally gives these women back their stories.
