Smithfield Critics Book Discussion : In Cold Blood - Truman Capote

Wednesday, October 17, 2012  
12:00 PM
On November 15, 1959, four members of a small town Kansas family were brutally murdered. There was no apparent motive for the crime and almost no clues. Truman Capote spent nearly six years reconstructing the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers. In Cold Blood is a pioneering work in the true crime genre that offers an insightful look into the nature of American violence.
