Local author Gary Stewart will discuss his most recent book, The Most Dangerous Animal of All: Searching for My Father and Finding the Zodiac Killer, at a free event on Wednesday, October 29, at 7 p.m. at the Main Library at Goodwood.
The book, co-written with Susan Mustafa, traces Stewart’s search for his birth father. Abandoned by his father as a baby in an apartment building in Baton Rouge, his birth parents were arrested and Stewart was adopted by a couple. After his birth mother contacted him years later, Stewart began searching for his birth father, Earl Van Best, Jr., and his search led him to believe Best was the so-called Zodiac Killer, the northern California serial killer of the 1960s, an unsolved case to this day.
Please note: The October issue of The Source incorrectly lists the True Crime Book Club as a separate meeting. The True Crime Book Club will attend this author event in lieu of a book discussion this month. The club will resume regular meetings next month with a discussion of Green River Running Red by Ann Rule on Wednesday, November 19.
