‘Pearl Harbor’ author Craig Nelson comes to FDR site
WHAT: Author talk and book signing Craig Nelson, author of “Pearl Harbor: From Infamy To Greatness.”
WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.
WHERE: Henry A. Wallace Center at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, 4079 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park
DETAILS: The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will kick-off a series of events commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor with an author talk and book signing with Nelson. Following the presentation, Nelson will be available to sign copies of his book. This event is free and open to the public. “Pearl Harbor: From Infamy To Greatness” follows, moment by moment, the sailors, soldiers, pilots, diplomats, admirals, generals, emperor, and president as they engineer, fight, and react to this moment in world history. Beginning in 1914, Nelson maps the road to war, with Franklin D. Roosevelt, then the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (and not yet afflicted with polio), attending the laying of the keel of the USS Arizona at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The book is backed by a research team’s five years of work, which produced nearly a million pages of documents, as well as Nelson’s re-examination of the original evidence assembled by federal investigators.
