James B. Stewart - Tangled Webs: How False Statements Are Undermining America
All Library locations will be closed on Saturday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
Author James B. Stewart examines America’s perjury epidemic through the cases of Martha Stewart, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Barry Bonds, and Bernie Madoff in a public conversation with Kansas City Public Library Director Crosby Kemper III. They will also discuss the broader breakdown in ethics and the age-old tension between greed and justice, self-interest and public interest, loyalty and duty.
