A Long Walk Home: Book Talk with Maplewood Author Joe Strupp

November 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This is a virtual program. Register here.

A Long Walk Home is the true story of Carol Ann Farino, a pretty, popular Columbia High School student who was strangled to death nearly 55 years ago, and whose killer was never found.

But more than just her story, it is also the tale of her younger sister, Cynthia, who was 11 at the time and remains in New Jersey. She spoke to Strupp at length about what happened to her sister, the impact on her then and now, and how police seem to be ignoring her inquiries for information, records and help.

Many of Carol’s former friends and classmates also offered clues and insight into this brutal crime that appears to have been poorly investigated and has impacted this community for decades.

Joe Strupp is an award-winning reporter with more than 30 years’ experience in newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and the Internet. His background span nearly all beats, from the environment to sports.

Copies of the book can be purchased through [words] Bookstore.
