American Heiress :  The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst

by Jeffrey Toobin Monday Oct 2 7:00 pm Tarbell Room

In the mid-1970s, the United States was a nation embroiled in turbulence. The Vietnam War was winding down, and the Watergate scandal had just claimed a president. In 1974, in the midst of this unrest, Patty Hearst, the granddaughter of publishing icon William Randolph Hearst, was kidnapped by a group of self-proclaimed revolutionaries calling themselves the Symbionese Liberation Army. As her family frantically tried to win her release, the case took a bizarre turn when Hearst announced she had joined the SLA and even took part in a bank robbery. Author Jeffrey Toobin examines the case of Hearst, illustrating how the decade shaped the events that she found herself caught up in and how the circus atmosphere surrounding her captivity and trial left an impact on the national consciousness.
