Read with Me in November: In Cold Blood

A little more than 50 years ago this month, four members of the Clutter family were shot and killed in their Kansas farmhouse. Truman Capote’s book, In Cold Blood, chronicles the crime and its aftermath, including the criminal investigation, trial and later hanging of the men responsible. In Cold Blood is considered a classic of the true crime genre and one of the first examples of narrative nonfiction so popular today.
