Book Club - American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst


Our January book will be American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst, Jeffrey Toobin. An account of Hearst's kidnapping and then participation in SLA crimes. Toobin presents his account chronologically but inserts back stories of the players and asides on the volatile cultural cross-currents of the time. The book's real power comes from Toobin's ability to convincingly and economically evoke a broad range of people.

Host: Barbara Scott Nelson
