NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – Author Ryan D’Agostino will talk about his book "The Rising: Murder, Heartbreak, and the Power of Human Resilience in an American Town" at the Ruth Keeler Memorial Library in North Salem on Saturday, Nov. 7.
“The Rising” is about a 2007 home invasion in Cheshire, Conn. The assailant brutally beat Dr. William Petit and killed his wife and their two daughters.
D’Agostino is the only journalist with whom Petit spoke at length, and he used material from their many interviews to write this book. He had previously written about the crime when he was editor for Esquire.
The Friends of the Keeler Library is sponsoring the author talk.
The talk begins at 6 p.m.
