April 4, 2019 – Interabang Books is honored to host Scott Pelley as he introduces TRUTH WORTH TELLING, his memoir from the frontlines of history. A copy of the book is included with each ticket ($36) to our special event, and he will autograph and personalize copies after his presentation Wednesday, May 29, at 7:00. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
A 60 Minutes correspondent for 20+ years and former managing editor of the CBS Evening News (2011-2017), Scott Pelley has been a reporter and photographer more than 45 years. Many North Texas residents remember his years at WFAA-TV Channel 8.
Pelley has written his new book as a witness to events that changed our world. Provocatively, he begins his exploration with this: "Don’t ask the meaning of life. Life is asking, what’s the meaning of you?" 
From there, Pelley introduces readers to remarkable people who discovered the meaning of their lives in the historic events of our times. In moving, detailed prose, Pelley stands with firefighters at the collapsing World Trade Center on 9/11 ... he advances with American troops in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq ... and he reveals private moments with presidents (and would-be presidents) he has known for decades.
Above all, in TRUTH WORTH TELLING Scott Pelley offers inspiring tales that remind us of the importance of values in uncertain times. He resoundingly defends free speech and a free press as the crucial rights that guarantee all the rest. For those who believe that values matter and that truth is worth telling, Scott Pelley says, “I have written this book for you.”
Scott Pelley’s work has been recognized with three duPont-Columbia Awards, three Peabody Awards, and 37 national Emmys. Pelley is the most awarded correspondent in the 51-year history of 60 Minutes. Pelley has been married to the love of his life for 35 years. He and Jane have two children.
