Hanover Square Press announced today a deal to publish Truth Worth Telling: A Reporter’s Search for Meaning in the Stories of Our Times written by journalist Scott Pelley, a longtime 60 Minutes correspondent and the most awarded journalist in news show’s 51-year history.

Introducing us to unforgettable people who discovered the meaning of their lives through historic, world-changing events, Pelley’s book reveals the experience of standing with firefighters at the collapsing World Trade Center on 9/11, advancing with American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, and sharing private moments with presidents (and would-be presidents) he’s known for decades.

Peter Joseph, Editorial Director at Hanover Square Press in New York, acquired world rights for the book from Esther Newberg and Zoe Sandler at ICM. Truth Worth Telling will be published in hardcover, digital, and audio on May 21, 2019. “We’re thrilled to be publishing Scott Pelley’s Truth Worth Telling,” said Joseph.  “His clear-eyed reporting and thoughtful writing offer readers a unique perspective on some of the momentous events, and characters, in American and world history.”

Scott Pelley has been a reporter and photographer for more than 45 years. He is best known for his award-winning work as a 60 Minutes correspondent and as anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News from 2011 to 2017. Pelley’s work has been recognized with three duPont-Columbia Awards, three Peabody Awards, and 37 national Emmy Awards bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. In 2016, he received the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism and Mass Communications.
