Truman Capote: The Making and Breaking of a Celebrity   

Truman Capote is known for two of his novels: "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" and "In Cold Blood". He is even more renowned for his self-created stardom, his scandalous behavior, his “Ball of the Century,” and his gossip-style exposé of Hollywood stars. This talk addresses the rise and fall of the most famous secret-teller of the 20th century. Familiarity with any of the following Capote works is helpful, but not required: "Miriam", "In Cold Blood", "Breakfast at Tiffany’s", "Answered Prayers", or "A Christmas Memory". A PowerPoint will be used to enhance the program.

Live In-Person with Video Catch-up. Available 2-3 business days after live lecture. You will have approximately two weeks to view the video.
