David Talbot, founder and former editor-in-chief of the Web magazine Salon, comes to the Borders bookstore at the Preston Royal Shopping Center (10720 Preston Road, Suite 1018) at 7 p.m. Monday to pitch his new book, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. The book explores JFK's efforts to shift the focus of U.S. foreign relations away from hawkishness—a move Talbot suggests estranged him from his security advisors. But let's cut to the good stuff: It's also about Robert Kennedy's subterranean effort to unravel what he believed was a conspiracy to murder his brother. You know: CIA spooks, the mob, anti-Castro right-wingers, etc. If you still don't buy the evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald was just a lone nut, Talbot has a whole slew of hidden history to stoke your conspiracy fires. Call 214-363-1977.
