Scout & Morgan Books is pleased to welcome, author and professor, Shaun Francis Peters. Shaun’s most recent book, The Infamous Harry Hayward: A True Account of Murder and Mesmerism in Gilded Age Minneapolis is the true story of the “Minneapolis Monster”. It describes the trial of Harry Hayward – a serial seducer and schemer deemed a “Svengali,” a “lunatic,” and a “man without a soul.” Shaun tells the life story, for the first time, of one of the most notorious criminals in America during the Gilded Age. “At last, a great nonfiction storyteller has given this terrifying murderer the well-researched and vividly written treatment he deserves. The Infamous Harry Hayward places readers inside the disordered mind of a Victorian era killer—and won’t let them go.” – Jack El-Hai, author of The Nazi and the Psychiatrist and The Lobotomist.
Shawn Francis Peters teaches in the Integrated Liberal Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He has written five books, most recently The Catonsville Nine: A Story of Faith and Resistance in the Vietnam Era.
