Presented with the Maysles Brothers film "With Love from Truman"

Author Ralph F. Voss was a high school junior in Plainville, Kansas, in November of 1959 when four members of the Herbert Clutter family were murdered in Holcomb, Kansas, by shotgun blasts from two unknown intruders. In his book and this special program, Truman Capote and the Legacy of "In Cold Blood," Voss examines Capote and his famous book about the murders from many perspectives: the crowning glory of Capote's career and its larger status in American popular culture. As depicted in many films including the Oscar-winning Capote, the investigations by Capote and Harper Lee in Kansas have assumed legendary status and become part of the story. For this event, co-sponsored by the Trail and the Alabama Department of Archives and History, Voss will also introduce the rarely-seen short Maysles documentary about Capote in 1966: With Love from Truman. Presented with grant support from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, a state agency of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
