Author Talk at Kennedy Library


Contributing Writer
Walter W. Pickut

It’s not all in the history books…yet. Come to the Kennedy Library on Friday evening at 6:00p.m., 649 2nd St, Kennedy, NY, and hear about a true, life-threatening spy-vs-spy story that was nearly lost forever in the FBI’s hidden archives.

Local author, Walt Pickut, will talk about the 5 ½ years of research that finally brought this case to light in spite of lies, bribes, and murder.

In addition, Walt will talk about the “Love letter to grandchildren I’ll never meet,” a memoir that Walt wrote in collaboration with Hall of Fame radio broadcaster, the locally beloved Jim Roselle.

A lively Q&A and book signing will follow the presentation.
