Roger Mills: JFK - The Last Speech

We welcome Roger Mills to discuss JFK: The Last Speech, which explores the dramatic relationship between two seminal Americans--President John F. Kennedy and the poet Robert Frost--which reached its tragic climax in a surprising encounter with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War. Born out of these events is Kennedy's remarkable speech about poetry and power, which alters the life course of a group of Amherst College classmates who witness this compelling address and continue to exemplify in their contemporary lives a portrait of the challenges facing America.

Featuring special guests Jan Worth-Nelson and Ted Nelson from East Village Magazine of Flint, MI.
