Stephen Molton: Brothers in Arms
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
Author Stephen Molton discusses his new book Brothers in Arms: The Kennedys, the Castros, and the Politics of Murder on Wednesday, February 25, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
Using reporting and interviews with long-silent sources, Molton and co-author Gus Russo offer a detailed look at the parallel sibling relationships between John and Robert Kennedy and Fidel and Raul Castro, and the disastrous consequences of the blood feud that arose between them in the early 1960s.
Molton’s appearance is co-sponsored by Barnes & Noble on the Plaza. Brothers in Arms will be available for sale, and the author will sign copies purchased during the event.
