Thirteen Days in October: The Untold Cuban Missile Crisis

The Westwood Historical Society – in collaboration with the Westwood Public Library – will be hosting noted author, Michael Tougias, via Zoom. Michael will talk about the strategic wisdom of John F. Kennedy and the U-2 aerial spy program during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
