Event description

Description

The Edmonton Public Library is pleased to welcome John Douglas, former FBI investigator and author, on October 28, 2019 at the Edmonton Inn & Conference Centre.

As an innovator at the FBI in the late 1970s, John Douglas developed new investigative techniques for hunting serial killers, sex offenders, and other violent offenders. Advancing the use in investigations of the procedure known as criminal profiling, Douglas became widely recognized as its top authority. A mix of psychology, pattern recognition, and inductive/deductive reasoning, criminal profiling allows investigators to make educated guesses about suspects–sometimes accurately predicting their age, background, personality, and other identifying characteristics from the barest of clues.

John Dougals entered popular culture as the model for Jack Crawford in the film, The Silence of the Lambs and his work has been reflected in many TV shows including Criminal Minds, The Profiler and CSI. He has consulted on major motion pictures including, most recently, The Lovely Bones for director Peter Jackson, and his book Mindhunter was recently made into a Netflix series based on Douglas’ life story starring Jonathan Groff.

In his latest book, The Killer Across The Table: Unlocking the Secrets of Serial Killers and Predators with the FBI‘s Original Mindhunter, Douglas delves deep into the lives and crimes of four of the most disturbing and complex predatory killers.

Tickets will go on sale starting at 10 am on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 for $10. There will also be a limited number of Preferred Seating tickets available for $125 which includes reserved seating, a ticket to the post-event reception with John Douglas and a tax receipt for a portion of the ticket price deemed charitable.

NOTE: Douglas' presentation is graphic at times and is for mature audiences only.

All proceeds from the event will support the Stanley A. Milner Library revitalization project.

The Forward Thinking Speaker Series reflects EPL’s rich history of taking risks, trying new things out and redefining the modern library. EPL is inviting thought-leaders from a variety of industries and around a variety of topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences and viewpoints, with the goal of helping us purposefully build better organizations, neighborhoods and communities.
