Hyde Park Book Group Meeting October 22, 2017
An American Heiress by Jeffrey Toobin
This month's selection revisits the notorious 1974 kidnapping of Patricia Hearst. The author details the behavior of the kidnappers, and the responses of the police, press and public. The eventual trial raises the question of the culpability of a person brought into a criminal group unwillingly.
We will be selecting books at the October 22 meeting. Fiction or non-fiction is fine. Please read the book before you recommend it. The person recommending the book usually leads the discussion.
We will meet at the Sidney residence in October. Please inform our hostess, Liz, if you plan to attend.
