Gil Klein Virtual Presentation, 7/29, 1:30-2:30pm

Last summer, the Friends of the Village Library hosted author Gil Klein as part of its summer program series. He spoke about the history of Lafayette Park, the park adjacent to the White House, which has been the sight of protests, murders and mayhem. Since he spoke to us, Lafayette Park is in the news once more as the place where the Black Lives Matter Protests have been closest to the President. On Wednesday, Gil Klein is doing a virtual presentation for the Arlington Virginia Department of Parks and Recreation. He will once again discuss his book, Trouble in Lafayette Square: Assassination, Protest and Murder at the White House,  ​​but this time he is updating his talk to discuss how the recent protests fit into that history. The talk will take place on July 29th from 1:30 to 2:30pm and can be accessed online for free at https://parks.arlingtonva.us/events/lafayette-square-the-crossroads-of-history-once-again/
