About the Event
“In a swirl of money and yearning, Laurence Leamer stitches the story of Truman Capote’s life and final book-that-never-was through the glamorous lives of the women who inspired it. The rich texture and lavish detail recall a time of beauty and longing, ambition and heartbreak, and its possibilities and limitations for New York’s “swans.” An engrossing evocation of an era.” — Julia Cooke, author of Come Fly the World: The Jet-Age Story of the Women of Pan-Am
We are delighted to welcome New York Times bestselling author LAURENCE LEAMER for this deep dive into the lives of the extraordinary women who were Truman Capote’s "swans". Laurence is the author of 18 books, including Madness Under the Royal Palms and The Kennedy Women. In pursuit of his stories, he has worked in a coal mine, covered wars and traveled among the high and low. He lives in Palm Beach and Washington, D.C.
