Nixon, based on his book Nixon's Darkest Secrets: The Inside Story of America's Most Troubled President, in the meeting room on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. 

With the Watergate building as an interim home of the West End Neighborhood Library, Fulsom will discuss Nixon's ties with the mob, his plots against political opponents, his war on the press, and his orchestration of his own pardon.  This talk will roughly mark the 40th anniversary of Nixon's resignation from office on Aug. 9, 1974, after two years of bitter public debate over the Watergate scandals.
