Join us to explore Francine Mathews’ book, Jack 1939.
It’s the spring of 1939, and the prospect of war in Europe looms large. The US has no intelligence service. In Washington, D.C., President Roosevelt may run for an unprecedented third term and needs someone he can trust to find out what the Nazis are up to. His choice: John F. Kennedy.
In a deft mosaic of fact and fiction, Francine Mathews has written a gripping espionage tale that explores what might have happened when a young Jack Kennedy is let loose in Europe as the world careens toward war. A potent combination of history and storytelling, Jack 1939 is a sexy, entertaining read.
