Stephen Kinzer: The True Flag
 

Stephen KinzerJOIN US FOR an Evening with Stephen KINZER  

What do Jimmy Kimmel and Mark Twain have in common? In addition to being very funny men, both challenged a leading politician on some of the most pressing issues of their day. Award-winning foreign correspondent Stephen Kinzer will take us back to Twain’s and Roosevelt’s time to show us how the power of the press and “fake news” shaped our past as it does the present.

Our community bookstore, Brookline Booksmith, will be on hand to sell books.
