BPL Event: Elon Green — Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York
Join the BPL for an online conversation with Elon Green, author of Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York. This talk is part of their Repairing America Series.
**Told for the first time, the captivating true crime narrative of the "Last Call Killer" who preyed upon the gay community of New York City at the height of the AIDS epidemic**
Last Call is the gripping true crime story of The Last Call Killer, who preyed upon gay men in New York in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Yet because of the sexuality of his victims, the murders at the hands of this notorious serial killer have been almost entirely forgotten. This socially important piece of history is a nuanced testament to the vibrant gay community and the challenges they faced in the post AIDs milieu of early 90s New York City.
More than impersonal crime reporting, Last Call brings to life the rich and tragic lives of The Last Call Killer’s victims and exposes the system that allowed them to be silenced. Green has crafted a methodical, yet vivid investigation into an era with powerful resonances to our world today.
