Thought you knew all about the northern end of Central Park? Stephen Wolf’s book blends fact with fiction and includes excerpts from novels, poems, essays and songs about Central Park.

Author Reading | Ike's Mystery Man: The Secret Lives of Robert Cutler


In the summer of 2006, journalist Peter Shinkle first heard that his great-uncle Bobby, also known as Robert Cutler, had a secret that could have brought down the Eisenhower presidency: he was gay, at a time when gay people were barred from employment by the federal government. He was the nation’s first Special Assistant for National Security Affairs (now called National Security Advisor), the closest confidante in the President’s inner circle. Shinkle reveals Cutler’s full story for the first time, and shows how valued he was by Eisenhower as a trusted friend and advisor on security and Cold War policy.
