Join fellow members for a book discussion with prize-winning journalist Pat Sloyan, who will be discussing his book, "The Politics of Deception:  JFK's Secret Decisions on Vietnam, Civil Rights and Cuba."

 

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

A young Patrick J. Sloyan was a wire-service reporter during the Kennedy administration at a press bureau that "doted on" the President. Now, over 50 years later, he turns a much more critical eye to the legacy of John F. Kennedy. In his new book, The Politics of Deception: JFK's Secret Decisions on Vietnam, Civil Rights, and Cuba, Sloyan pulls back the veil on Kennedy's shaky last year in the presidency, exposing a man whose role during the calamities and deceptions of the early 60s--the assassination of South Vietnamese president Ngo Dinh Diem, the negotiating of a secret deal to resolve the Cuban missile crisis, and the wiretapping of Martin Luther King, Jr.--was much more involved than we have been led to believe.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Patrick J. Sloyan is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who has covered national and international affairs since 1960. He has been the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting and Spot News Reporting, the George Polk Award for War Reporting, and the Deadline Writing prize. Sloyan has written for Rolling Stone, The New Republic, The Nation, and The London Guardian.
