Scott Pelley

Interabang is honored to host Scott Pelley as he introduces TRUTH WORTH TELLING, his memoir from the frontlines of history. This is a ticketed event, sold through Eventbrite. A copy of the book is included in the price of each ticket, and he will sign and inscribe copies after his presentation.

A 60 Minutes correspondent and former anchor for CBS News, Scott Pelley writes as a witness to events that changed our world. Provocatively, Pelley begins his exploration with this: "Don’t ask the meaning of life. Life is asking, what’s the meaning of you?" From there, he 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) whom he has known for decades.

Above all, in TRUTH WORTH TELLING Scott Pelley offers a collection of inspiring tales that reminds 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.”
