Catherine Pelonero visited Talking Leaves bookstore in Buffalo, New York on Thursday, May 1, 2014 to sign copies of her book, Kitty Genovese: A True Account of a Public Murder and its Private Consequences.

Talking Leaves is Buffalo’s oldest independent bookstore. The Kitty Genovese book signing was held at the Elmwood location of Talking Leaves, 951 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222. On the web: http://www.tleavesbooks.com/

The signing followed an appearance by Pelonero on Channel 7’s AM Buffalo on the morning of May 1.

Author Catherine Pelonero is originally from Buffalo, where she studied playwriting with Buffalo’s esteemed dramatist, the late Emanuel “Manny” Fried. Her work was first produced and published in her hometown.

Pelonero became intrigued by the Kitty Genovese case and its Buffalo connection (killer Winston Moseley escaped from a Buffalo hospital in 1968 and went on a violent crime spree before being recaptured in Grand Island). Her book includes a full account of Moseley’s dramatic escape and crimes in Buffalo.

Catherine Pelonero is married to fellow Buffalo native Josh Brewster, a graduate of the University at Buffalo and currently a National Hockey League radio broadcaster for the Anaheim Ducks. They live in Los Angeles with their two sons.
