Walter Kirn Tells a Tale of the Long Con In Brief

Walter Kirn Tells a Tale of the Long Con

Calendar Item Writers in the Loft: Walter Kirn Sponsored by: Citizens Bank Wed., 3/26, 7pm The Music Hall Loft 131 Congress St. Portsmouth, NH Tickets: $40. Includes reserved seat, hardcover book (BLOOD WILL OUT: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery and a Masquerade, $25.95), bar beverage; author presentation, Q+A, and book signing meet-and-greet Buy Tickets Walter Kirn, author of Up In the Air, comes to us with his latest book, Blood Will Out on Wednesday, Mar. 26 at 7pm in the Loft. In his recent interview (of himself) in the New York Times, Kirn tells us the twisted true story of a con that starts with the transport of a crippled shelter dog from Montana to New York City and ends, some 15 years later, with the murder conviction of Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, (a.k.a. Clark Rockefeller). The book is already on tap to make the “Best of 2014” lists and we have been following the story since we first came across it in The New Yorker. We are very excited to be welcoming Mr. Kirn to the Loft for what is sure to be an interesting and memorable evening as we discuss his relationship to Gerharsreiter, the craft of writing nonfiction, and the story behind the story.  Related Links: #BloodWillOut @WalterKirn CBS’s 48 Hours Janet Maslin’s New York Times Book Review of “Blood Will Out” Nina Burleigh’s New York Times piece in the Sunday Book Review The New Yorker Articles - Note: some content requires a subscription Time Magazine’s  review by Jack Dickey Read More Read More
