Join novelist Robert Brighton for a very special evening event — a journey behind the scenes of Buffalo’s ‘Murder of the Century,’ the 1903 bludgeoning of businessman Edwin Burdick in his Elmwood home – a never-solved case with an even more mysterious and misunderstood motive.

An engaging and lively speaker, Brighton will provide an overview of the case, his research, and take questions from the audience about the underbelly of Gilded Age Buffalo.  And he will reveal – for the first time since 1903 – the only known extant period image of the crime scene itself.

Brighton’s forthcoming novel, The Unsealing – inspired by the case and which takes an entirely fresh look at previously overlooked evidence – will be available for signing by the author — at a special VIP discount and before the official publication date!  He will donate 50% of all sales on this special pre-general-publication signing to the Buffalo History Museum.
