Jim Reston, author of numerous books and articles and key player in the David Frost interview of Richard Nixon, will be our guest to discuss his newest book, "The 19th Hijacker: A Novel." The 19th Hijacker explores the events of 9/11 from the mind of one of the September 11 hijackers, taking us into the heart of Sami Haddad and his decision to participate (or not) in the attacks that took place on 9/11.

"The 19th Hijacker will inform and surprise readers with an original perspective that only a writer with Reston's wide range of scholarship can provide." —Brent Glass, Director Emeritus, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution

Reston has written on numerous topics and won many awards and high praise for his work. His more recent books include A Rift in the Earth, about the fight for the Vietnam War Memorial, The Accidental Victim, on the assassination of JFK, and the Impeachment Diary, Jim’s personal account of the removal of President Nixon.

“Yes We Can” became the rallying cry for women in WWII. Answering their country’s call, women rolled up their sleeves and went to work wherever they were needed. When almost all able-bodied men went off to fight on the front lines, women took their place on the home front, serving as riveters, pilots, nurses, scientists and truck drivers. This program will focus on the “Rosies” and how the women’s work influenced the course of the war, and, conversely, how the war work affected the women’s lives. It also includes film clips of interviews with many of the Rosies.

Patricia DelGiorno has made an extensive study of women’s roles in War and has participated in World Wars I and II studies at Cambridge and Oxford Universities which she lectures and gives presentations on: In 2013 she completed a Master’s Thesis entitled “Crossing Borders - Women Secret Agents of Britain’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) in WWII.
