Espionage Book Club
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location: Leslie F. Malpass Library, First Floor near the fireplace.
Description: University Libraries’ Summer Espionage Book Club’s last meeting will be Monday, August 12, 2012 at Noon at the fireplace lounge located on the First Floor of the Leslie F. Malpass Library.

The book will be Christine Matthews’, Jack 1939, and can be ordered at, which imagines a young Jack Kennedy spying for the United States in the spring of 1939, as Europe prepares for war. Is it any good? Well, The New Yorker said, “Family mythology and intimations of Jack’s destiny are deftly and amusingly woven into page-turning adventures in London, Rome, Paris, Berlin, Danzig, and Warsaw.“ Library Journal opined, “Young Jack Kennedy makes for a flawed but appealing protagonist, and the espionage plot is complex and thrilling in equal parts.”
