Danville Library to Discuss "In Cold Blood" At Adult Book Discussion
August 22, 2015 - 11:36 AM
DANVILLE - The
Danville Public Library will present the 1965 bestseller, "In Cold
Blood," by Truman Capote, at its adult book discussion on Tuesday,
August 25, 6:30 p.m. at McFadden's Hot Spot, 510 S. Market Street.
November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members
of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun
held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the
crime, and there were almost no clues.
As Capote reconstructs
the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and
execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerizing suspense and
astonishing empathy. “In Cold Blood” is a work that transcends its
moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence.
Smith will be the discussion leader. A copy of the book donated by
Friends of the Library will be given as a door prize. The program is
free and open to the public. For more information, call the Danville
Public Library at 740-599-BOOK (2665) or visit www.knox.net. (lpm)
