POSTPONED Casey Cep will Present her Critically Acclaimed New Softcover ~ Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee

POSTPONED EVENT OVERVIEW:  Casey Cep, New York Times Bestselling Author, will Present her Critically Acclaimed New Softcover Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee. 

ABOUT CASEY CEP:  Casey Cep is a Staff Writer at The New Yorker.  After Graduating from Harvard College with a Degree in English, she earned an M.Phil in Theology at the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar.  She lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her family.  Furious Hours is her 1st Book and it was an instant New York Times Bestselling Hardcover.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Reverend Willie Maxwell was a rural Preacher accused of murdering five of his family members for insurance money in the 1970s.  With the help of a savvy lawyer, he escaped justice for Years until a relative shot him dead at the funeral of his last victim.  Despite hundreds of witnesses, Maxwell’s murderer was acquitted, thanks to the same attorney who had previously defended the Reverend.

Sitting in the audience during the vigilante’s Trial was Harper Lee, who had traveled from New York City to her native Alabama with the idea of writing her own In Cold Blood, the True-Crime Classic she had helped her friend Truman Capote research 17 Years earlier.  Lee spent a year in town reporting, and many more years working on her own version of the Case.

Now Casey Cep brings this story to life, from the shocking murders to the Courtroom drama to the racial politics of the Deep South.  At the same time, she offers a deeply moving portrait of one of the country’s most beloved Writers and her struggle with fame, success, and the mystery of artistic creativity.
