28th November 2019 | The Curtain

The 28th November is the anniversary of Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball and we’ll welcome to the Salon stage the award-winning Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott, to tell us the story of Truman Capote’s decision to publish in 'Esquire' magazine the deepest, darkest secrets of his best and closest friends, the glamorous, wealthy society women he called his 'Swans'.

This was the biggest literary betrayal ever. But what caused such a creative genius to betray most savagely those closest to him? There are ten years of research that have gone in to 'Swan Song' - longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2019. So why not slide in to party season with Salon London by taking a closer look at one of the biggest parties ever held (Truman kept a book by his side of invited guests - delisting and relisting those according to their behaviour) and hear the dizzying story of high society and Capote, a tale of romance and rupture that moves between the cocktail-soaked Manhattan parties and the Deep South of Capote’s childhood.

The Screening Room at The Curtain Members Club, 28th November. Doors open 7pm - event begins 7:30pm. Dress Code Black and White of Course. Please take inspiration from here.
