Her interest in Lizzie Borden studies began some 25 years ago when her father, an avid reader of true crime and world history, offered up a title on the famous double-murder. The book was passed around the family from father to daughter, sister to brother, and brother to mother. It was then that the dinner table talks began. They have not ended.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1411476638326{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;background-color: #eaeaea !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_blank” style=”vc_box_shadow_border_circle” image=”3654″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” img_link_large=”yes”][vc_custom_heading text=”Stefani Koorey, PhD” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:center|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1435104840056{padding-left: 10px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
