Series details book’s legacy
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood," considered one of the 20th century's great works of literature.
A class of seven reporting students, a photography student and four documentary film students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln spent the fall studying Capote's work and its impact on literature and journalism, the community where the story unfolded and some of its principal characters.
The students obtained exclusive interviews from people who had refused to talk publicly about the crime or the book.
The students' works were published in a four-day series, In Cold Blood: A Legacy, in the Lawrence Journal-World. The students' accounts are online at ljworld.com/specials/incoldblood.
