Join author Tobin T. Buhk for "Michigan's Most Dangerous Women: A New True Crime Adventure" at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25 in the Community Room at the Timothy C. Hauenstein Reynolds Township Library.

Take a peek behind the walls of the old Detroit House of Correction, the only Michigan prison to house female inmates serving long-term sentences, and meet some of the most dangerous women in Michigan history: a serial poisoner who killed over a dozen because she wanted to don her black dress and attend the funerals; a woman who drowned her unwanted children, one by one, in a nearby river; a wife who used an ax to sever her marriage; and a con artist known as “Queen of the Underworld.” True crime author Tobin T. Buhk will introduce the audience to these and many other morbidly intriguing characters in “Michigan’s Most Dangerous Women.” (Wicked Women of Detroit; Michigan’s Strychnine Saint)
