Remembering ALISTAIR COOKE
Today is Alistair Cooke's 100th birthday! Joining The Overlook Press in New York tonight will be Susan Cooke Kittredge and John Byrne Cooke, for a special birthday reception hosted by Peter Mayer and Rebecca Eaton, Executive Producer of Masterpiece on PBS. Reporting America is a magnificent new book containing Cooke's dispatches, almost all of them uncollected, on the key moments, movements and men and women of post-war America. On sale today! And stay tuned for a full party report and pics.
