Where were you when the pizza bomber plot played out on upper Peach Street back in 2003?

Where will you be tonight?

If you’ve spent the past nine years following the fascinating infamous Erie case, you might want to head to Gannon University tonight.

Retired FBI agent and current Gannon professor Jerry Clark and Erie Times-News reporter Ed Palattella, one of my co-workers, wrote “Pizza Bomber: The Untold Story of America’s Most Shocking Bank Robbery.” If you have a copy of the new book, they’ll sign it for free tonight at 7 p.m. in the Yehl Ballroom at Gannon’s Waldron Campus Center, 124 W. Seventh St.

On Saturday from 1-3 p.m., they’ll be at Werner Books, 3514 Liberty St.
