About the Event
William Martin, who has entertained the Jenks Senior Center many times, will introduce his newest novel, this year's big page-turner, DECEMBER '41. It’s a World War II thriller that begins on the day after Pearl Harbor, when a German agent evades an FBI dragnet in Los Angeles and heads for Washington. His assignment? To kill Franklin Roosevelt on Christmas Eve as he lights the National Christmas tree. Martin - the award-winning New York times bestselling author of twelve novels, book reviews, magazine articles, TV documentaries, and a cult-classic horror film, too - will discuss the historical context of that fateful month. He'll bring a lost era to life and introduce us to some of the featured players, like FDR and Churchill.
