Panel discussion on Police Detective Lori Shenher's book on botched missing women investigation
“This impassioned, deeply personal memoir by a Vancouver cop vividly recalls the racism, sexism, and sheer incompetence that undermined the hunt for Canada’s most prolific serial killer.”
William Deverell, author of High Crimes
On October 5, Greystone Books will host a panel discussion to launch former police detective Lori Shenher’s book, That Lonely Section of Hell. Shenher's book gives a searing personal account of the sexism, racism, and mishandling that pervaded Vancouver’s Missing and Murdered Women Investigation, which became the largest serial killer investigation in Canadian history.
The evening panel will include Shenher, Senator Larry Campbell, Vancouver Observer editor-in-chief Sandy Garossino, and other community stakeholders who will discuss the deeper causes of this tragedy and the myriad ways the system broke down. Most importantly, they will shine a light on how far we’ve come since we failed to stop a serial killer, and what we still need to do to protect vulnerable people in our communities.
What: Book launch for Lori Shenher’s, That Lonely Section of Hell, and panel discussion with Lori Shenher, Senator Larry Campbell and Sandy Garossino.
Where: Vancouver Public Library, 350 West Georgia Street, Alice MacKay Room
When: October 5, 2015, 7 - 8:30pm.
The event is open to the public and Shenher's book That Lonely Section of Hell will be available for purchase.
