City Arts & Lectures Presents JEFFREY TOOBIN

City Arts & Lectures Presents JEFFREY TOOBIN

In American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst, Jeffrey Toobin unravels one of the most riveting and bizarre news stories of the last century. In 1974, while a sophomore in college, Hearst was kidnapped by a group self-styled “revolutionaries” calling themselves the Simbionese Liberation Army. For the next two years, Hearst, her captors, and the surrounding media frenzy held the public’s attention. Toobin’s research reveals the stranger-than-fiction happenings as well as the overall craziness of the times. Toobin is a staff writer at The New Yorker, a senior legal analyst at CNN and the author of Too Close to Call, A Vast ConspiracyThe Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court and The Oath: The Obama White House vs. the Supreme Court. Jeffrey will be in conversation with David Talbot, author of  The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government.
