June Classics Book Club-In Cold Blood

Join us June 25th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

On 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 Truman 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.

Ask at the desk or email baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve a copy of this classic. And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
7/23/19–The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
8/27/19–The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John LeCarre
