The Untold Story of the Cuban Missile Crisis
Thursday, October 28th, 7:00 PM
Michael Tougias, best selling author and speaker In this virtual multimedia presentation based on his recently published co-authored book Above & Beyond: John F. Kennedy and America’s Most Dangerous Cold War Spy Mission, New York Times bestselling author Michael Tougias first chronicles the thirteen harrowing days of the Cuban Missile Crisis and then outlines the steps President Kennedy made to reach a decision on a course of action. Special emphasis is given to the heroes of the crisis: the U-2 pilots who flew unarmed missions over Cuba. Most people don’t realize one of our pilots was shot down and killed over Cuba, almost leading to the start of WWIII. Tougias will show slides of the events and discuss four lesser known incidents that put the world in peril.
