Journalist and historian Peter Rand, a senior lecturer in COM’s Writing Program, discusses his new book, Conspiracy of One: Tyler Kent’s Secret Plot against FDR, Churchill, and the Allied War Effort. The book tells the story of American code clerk Tyler Kent who stole top-secret cables that he himself had encoded and transmitted from Churchill to Roosevelt seeking American help. Rand arrestingly weaves together Kent’s star-crossed love affair, imprisonment, and trial into a rich tapestry that conveys a fresh vision of the tumultuous era. Joe Wippl, Professor of International Relations, responds. RSVP by Friday, September 27
