The Director: My Years Assisting J. Edgar Hoover
  • Date: Thursday, July 15, 2021
  • Time: 12:00 pm
  • Location: Online

In 1965, 22-year old Paul Letersky was assigned to assist the legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, who had led the Bureau for an incredible 41 years. Hoover’s personal privacy was more tightly guarded than the secret “files” he carefully collected—and that were feared by politicians and celebrities. In the first book ever written about Hoover by a member of his trusted, personal staff, The Director offers a unique inside look at one of the most powerful law enforcement figures in American history. Joining Letersky in conversation will be former FBI agent Joe Pistone.
