"CEMETERY JOHN" by Robert Zorn-Monday, September 22 at 7:00 pm

Did you enjoy reading the book "The Aviator's Wife" by Melanie Benjamin and do you have an interest in the mystery of the Lindbergh baby? You may want to attend a program at the library on Monday, September 22 at 7:00 pm. New Jersey resident, Robert Zorn, will discuss his book "Cemetery John: The Undiscovered Mastermind of the Lindbergh Kidnapping." Zorn's book and research led to the creation of the PBS NOVA documentary, "Who Killed Lindbergh's Baby."In his book, Zorn talks about a conversation in German that his late father overheard in the 1930's-A neighbor named John who he believed was the "Cemetery John" who collected the ransom money from a cemetery in the Bronx, N.Y. Since his father's death, Robert Zorn has done extensive research trying to prove that although Bruno Hauptmann went to the electric chair for the murder of the Lindbergh baby; he in fact, may have been an accomplice, involved in the kidnapping plot with two other men.Join us on September 22 to meet Robert Zorn and hear his fascinating story. He will have copies of his book for sale. Please sign up at the Little Silver Library to attend.
