From the StoryCorps Archives: Truman Capote gets Arrested

Laura and Nancy Speak

Just over two years ago, the StoryCorps mobile soundbooth came to Wilmington and recorded rich stories of family, heritage, and personal struggle. WHQR News is thrilled to bring this wonderful catalog of Wilmington back for a second look.

Former WHQR intern Laura Hunsberger and WHQR volunteer Nancy Richardson talk about Truman Capote. Richardson's mother detests Capote, and then she arrests him. Richardson describes the acclaimed author of In Cold Blood as "a nasty little man."
