Welcome to the first episode of Criminally Booked! Like many people, we’re fascinated by crime, both true and fictional, and we wanted to create a segment that combines the two. Criminally Booked gives us a space to share true crime stories while also sharing helpful resources, laws that have been enacted, and other pertinent information.

With these true crime stories, we're also tying in fiction book recommendations that we will be bringing exclusively to our patrons first! We hope you enjoy what is a reoccurring bonus episode topic for Patrons of Book Talk, etc!
