We invite you to the Sandwich Public Library on Tuesday evening, June 2 at 6:30 PM to hear author Paul Starobin talk about his latest book, A Most Wicked Conspiracy, a tale of Gilded Age corruption—gold-looting, court-buying, and good old-fashioned venality—that extended from the new frontier of Alaska to the Oval Office.
Paul Starobin is the author of Madness Rules the Hour: Charleston, 1860 and the Mania for War, praised by the New York Times as a “fast-paced, engagingly written account” of the hysteria that descended on Charleston, South Carolina, on the eve of the Civil War. He has been a frequent contributor to the Atlantic and is a former Moscow bureau chief for Business Week. He has written for other publications including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Politico, National Geographic, and Smithsonian. He lives with his family in Orleans, Massachusetts.
