Focus On The Book: The Leopold and Loeb Files by Nina Barrett

The Leopold and Loeb Files takes a first-of-its-kind approach to the infamous murder of 14-year-old Bobby Franks by wealthy University of Chicago students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb. Author Nina Barrett has mined the source material generated by the case—court transcripts, psychological reports, recorded interrogations, and more—and arranged them to compose a chilling, fact-driven narrative of the events as they unfolded.

The Loyola Libraries presents two events related to Nina Barrett’s new book.
