Hiking The Alps - Wunderbar

Author Lecture and Book Signing

Enjoy pictures and anecdotes about hiking the Alps.  You'll be surprised how easy it is, because of villages, mountain hostels, restaurants and a network of trails.  Gudrun and Peter Seifert (of Middletown) started on their track through the Alps when they retired, and since have been back many times.  Hiking helps to stay fit, and the sooner one starts, the better.  There are plenty of opportunities in our area with many of them nearby, too.

Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot

by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard


In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody.

The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.
