Homicide comes rarely to Orinda. And when Susan Polk stabbed her husband (and former psychotherapist) Dr. Felix Polk to death there in 2002, we learned about a marriage that many said was doomed from the start. Susan was Felix's patient at age fourteen; they became lovers despite their 26-year age difference and much else. Local journalist Carol Pogashcovered the case; her book Seduced by Madness includes details that no other writer was able to acquire. She discusses it on Jan. 15 at the Moraga Library (1500 St. Mary's Rd., Moraga), a stone's throw from the crime scene. 7 p.m.
