Larry Tippin will speaking at the Putnam County Public Library on Tuesday Dec. 4 at 6:30 p.m. about his new limited edition book “The Betrayal of Pearl Bryan: Unraveling the Gilded Age Mystery That Captivated a Nation,”
Thousands of pages of trial transcripts, depositions, newspaper accounts and other documents were used to detail the 1896 murder of Pearl Bryan and Greencastle native. Readers familiar with the Bryan story may be happy to get a more accurate description of the case. Anyone not familiar with the story may find the details chronicled in book very intriguing.
Tippin has served as county Historian since 2008 and has also served as treasurer and president of the North Putnam Alumni Association, as a member of the board of directors of the local Heritage Preservation Society, Putnam County Museum and Friends of the Roachdale Library.
There will be copies of the book for sale, and signing by the author. The event is free and open to the public.
