‘Searching for Patty Hearst’ – Author Rapoport to Speak at Culver City Julian Dixon Library

On the night that Patty Hearst was kidnapped in 1974, journalist Roger D. Rapoport, was a short drive away in his El Cerrito home. He quickly became one of the primary reporters covering the saga as it unfolded in real time. His reporting gave local and national readers a window into one of the most bizarre and polarizing crimes in U.S. history. Now, fifty years later, he has written a novel, which draws heavily from that time.

Join us for a discussion and Q&A in the meeting room on Jan. 23, 2024 from 6 pm. Parking is available behind the library. Registration is encouraged; walk-ins are welcome as space permits. Books will be on sale at the event, thanks to The Village Well, and the author will be happy to sign them.

This program will also be offered Thursday, January 25, at 1 pm.
