This revelation occurred after Oprah had selected “A Million Little Pieces” for her book club and made Frey into a bestselling author. Frey, however, wasn’t the first person to fabricate his life story for a book deal. Come learn about the rich history of autobiographical forgery with Community Librarian Nate Pedersen.
