Meetings are informal and fun interactive experiences.  Because the book under discussion is often just the starting point launching us into wide ranging conversations both personal and philosophical. We hope to see you there!

What: Vulgar Favors: The Hunt for Andrew Cunanan, the Man Who Killed Gianni Versace

Author: Maureen Orth

Book Description

Read the true story of the manhunt that inspired The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, the latest chapter of the acclaimed FX series.

O
n July 15, 1997, Gianni Versace was shot and killed on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. But months before Versace’s murder, award-winning journalist Maureen Orth was already investigating a major story on Cunanan for Vanity Fair. Culled from interviews with more than four hundred people and insights gleaned from thousands of pages of police reports, Vulgar Favorstells the complete story of Andrew Cunanan, his unwitting victims, and the moneyed world in which they lived ... and died. Orth reveals how Cunanan met Versace, and why police and the FBI repeatedly failed to catch him. Here is a gripping odyssey that races across America—from California’s wealthy gay underworld to modest Midwestern homes of families mourning the loss of their sons to South Beach and its unapologetic decadence. Vulgar Favors is at once a masterwork of investigative journalism and a riveting account of a sociopath, his crimes, and the mysteries he left along the way. 

“The breadth and thoroughness of Orth’s research are often staggering.”—The New York Times
