Books & Bites: John Pruitt with Tell it True

For more than four decades, John Pruitt covered the news for Atlanta and Georgia as a television anchor and reporter. Now, he's written a book inspired by a story he covered early in his career, a story that he could never put behind him. In Tell it True, an African-American serviceman is gunned down on a rural Georgia road in July 1964. This shocking murder ensnares a wide range of characters including the journalists who cover it,  the lawmen who must solve it, the civil rights leaders who capitalize upon it, the politicians who  exploit it, and the Atlanta magnate who fears its impact on the New South image he  desperately wants to protect.
