Entry to the program is free and registration is not required.

Purchase “Trial In Cooperstown” from our website.

Visit Fenimore for a book reading with author, columnist and radio commentator Tom Morgan, as he launches his new book “Trial in Cooperstown.” The book delivers an intimate account of a manslaughter trial that took place in the village in 2006. Following the reading, Mr. Morgan will sign copies of his book in the Museum’s Study Center. Refreshments will be available. Entry to the program is free and registration is not required. Seating for the book reading is limited to 60 people.

Tom Morgan spent years researching trial transcripts and other pertinent records to create a gripping work of narrative non-fiction that encompasses his own impressions of the trial he was witnessing, a description of the personalities and architecture of Cooperstown, and his conversations with those directly and indirectly involved with the trial. Morgan offers skillfully written reportage in the tradition of Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood.”
