Books: Matthew H. Bernstein 

Mon., July 13

There's been speculation over the 1913 rape and murder of Mary Phagan since it happened, and if Leo Frank, the Jewish supervisor of an Atlanta pencil factory who was convicted of the crime, was actually responsible. Emory professor MATTHEW H. BERNSTEIN pays special attention to the media's sensational take on the case, as well as racism, anti-Semitism and class resentment in his new book, Screening a Lynching: The Leo Frank Case on Film and Television. A book signing follows a discussion, and Bernstein will screen select films clips. Free. 7:15 p.m. Decatur Library, 215 Sycamore St., Decatur. 404-370-3070.
