In a special Halloween event co-sponsored by The Rumpus, Tori Telfer will read from her new book on female serial killers, Lady Killers.

Lady Killers is a bloodcurdling, insightful, and irresistible journey into the heart of female darkness. Each chapter explores the crimes and history of a different subject, and features women such as Erzsebet Bathory, Nannie Doss, Mary Ann Cotton, and Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova.

"Telfer proves that you can stab, poison, and suffocate the predictable tropes about female killers and still write something salacious and entertaining."—Caitlin Doughty

Tori Telfer has worked in publishing, teaching, and academic editing. She graduated magna cum laude from Northwestern University, and her work has appeared on Salon, Jezebel, The Hairpin, and VICE.
