Fresh Voices with author James R. Fitzgerald


Come and join as the Cape May County Public Library hosts author James Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald will be offering an interactive reading from his book “A Journey to the Center of the Mind.” The book description is as follows: Jim Fitzgerald, now-retired FBI criminal profiler and forensic linguist (one who analyzes language as evidence), recounts what it was like growing up from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s in his Philadelphia neighborhood, and parts slightly beyond. Antics, pranks, weird people, inspirational people, cool people, funny people, and serious and humorous anecdotes alike, are shared for the first time for all to read in his very personal and insightful memoir spanning 20 years. Each of these experiences would serve to shape and form Jim’s later successful profiling and forensic linguistic career in the FBI and provide him with the foundational framework to help him solve some of the biggest crimes in U.S. history, and some of the smaller ones too.
