I have a secret.
I love true crime! Charles Manson was my gateway murderer. I remember his scary visage on magazines when I was a barely sentient child. The SVA Library, primarily an art and design collection, does have several books related to true cirme.
Scene of the Crime
Shots in the Dark
True Crime Assassination
Least Wanted: a century of American Mugshots
Another related topic that facinates me is feral children. Someone had to abandon these kids!
Savage Girls and Wild Boys
Encounters with Wild Children
The Forbidden Experiment: the story of the Wild Boy of Aveyron
There are all sort of unexpected things to find in the SVA Library that will satisfy everyone's esoteric interest.
