November 2
7-8:30 pm
at the Reston Regional Library,
author Kathleen Kinsolving
will talk about her recently published
biography of her dad, Les Kinsolving,
long time White House press correspondent.

From the book's website:

There have been legendary figures making up the White House press corps, but imagine a harmless-looking Anglican priest with a nose for an administration’s weak spots!

Such a combination of traits perfectly describes Les Kinsolving, a crusader for truth, a confidante, and a Washington fixture for decades. In short, a celebrated gadfly who has bedeviled press spokesmen and amused onlookers.

In this thoroughly engaging biography by Kinsolving’s daughter, Kathleen, the Gadfly’s life, work, and essence mesh to provide readers and lovers of Washington politics a delicious tale that sheds light on a bygone era when journalists loved reporting more than they loved the advancement of their own careers.

There will be copies of the book available for purchase, or you may bring your own for signing.

Light Refreshments will be served
