WHAT HATH CAPOTE WROUGHT?

What happens when a writer tells an utterly true story using devices from the fiction-writer’s toolbox? It’s a technique pioneered in the first modern true crime, a “nonfiction novel” called “In Cold Blood.” Ron Franscell, an Edgar nominated crime writer—and Wyoming native—explores the entangled histories of true-crime books and literary nonfiction, up to and including his own narrative writing as a Denver Post journalist and author of two bestselling, true accounts about wicked Wyoming crimes.

Ron will also participate in a Casper College book club gathering at the campus’s Goodstein Library on February 19 (time TBA).
