The 19th Hijacker
Monday, September 20, 2021, 4:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Registration is recommended
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.
