Friday, October 23, 2015

3 p.m.

Kassar Foxboro Auditorium

Book signing to follow.

How did a popular American imam who denounced 9/11 go on to become Al Qaeda's top recruiter? Why did President Obama order his execution by drone? And did his death actually make his message more dangerous? Scott Shane, national security reporter for The New York Times and author of the new book Objective Troy: A Terrorist, A President, and the Rise of the Drone, will speak and answer questions.
