THE CRIMINAL MIND: KILLER HANDWRITING
Handwriting analyst Terry Antoniewicz will explain how a person’s handwriting can reveal “criminal tendencies” during the Sept. 28 meeting of Sisters in Crime/Central Jersey at the Jamesburg Senior Center, 139 Stevens Ave., Jamesburg. Her free program, presented during the group’s annual “Agatha (Christie) Party,” will begin at 11 a.m., and admission is free.
Antoniewicz will analyzing handwriting samples relating to high-profile cases such as the Lindbergh baby kidnapping and the Jack the Ripper and White Castle murders, with insights that may surprise even history buffs. She says, “I will also acknowledge Agatha Christie’s birthday, and tie in some criminal-mind details that highlight this beloved author.”
Antoniewicz is a calligrapher with over 45 years of experience in analyzing handwriting to update/repair historical documents. She has created documents for royalty throughout Europe, including several for Queen Elizabeth II. She has spoken on the history of handwriting throughout Canada and the U.S., and uses signature analysis to entertain, fundraise and provide insight for her motivational programs for corporate team-building.
The time of Antoniewicz’s presentation is approximate, following the group’s 10:30 a.m. business meeting. Her program will be followed by SinCCJ’s annual Agatha Party, usually held in September to mark the author’s birthday. The decorations and refreshments will follow a slightly macabre “traditional mystery” theme.
