Founder and former editor-in-chief of Salon, former editor for Mother Jones and the San Francisco Examiner, David Talbot will discuss his highly acclaimed book Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. Signing, discussion and q&a.
David Talbot has sought to understand the enduring mystery of the death of John F Kennedy by immersing himself in Kennedy scholarship, by poring over newly released government documents and by reliving these years with the Kennedys' "band of brothers," as Bobby called them—the living links to the New Frontier.
Talbot discovers "that Robert Kennedy did not resign himself to the lone gunman theory, the official version of his brother's death. On the contrary, he immediately suspected that President Kennedy was the victim of a powerful conspiracy. And he spent the rest of his life secretly searching for the truth about his brother's murder. This book will not only shine a light on Robert Kennedy's hidden quest, it will seek to explain why he came to such a dark understanding of JFK's death."
