Author Talk: Roseanne Montillo – Deliberate Cruelty

Tuesday, December 6, 2022 @ 7:00 pm


The Medford Public Library welcomes author Roseanne Montillo to discuss her new book, “Deliberate Cruelty: Truman Capote, The Millionaire’s Wife, and the Murder of the Century.” When Ann Woodward shot her husband, her life changed forever. Though she claimed she thought he was a prowler, few believed the former showgirl and no one was more obsessed with the tale than Truman Capote. Capote decided the story of Ann’s turbulent marriage would be the basis of his next masterpiece—never thinking that it would eventually lead to Ann’s suicide and his own scandalous downfall. Montillo’s other books include “Fire on the Track,” “The Lady and her Monsters” and “The Wilderness of Ruin.” RSVP through the library’s online calendar.
