Khrushchev and Me :)

I signed copies of CAMELOT’S COUSIN last weekend at George Mason University at an event sponsored by the Cold War Museum. One of the other author/participants was Sergei Khrushchev, son of the late Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev.

This event was dedicated to Col. Rudolph Anderson, a U-2 pilot shot down during the Cuban Missile Crisis exactly 50 years ago to the date of the conference (October, 27, 1962). Mr. Khrushchev shared memories about his father and a perspective from the Soviet side of things. He was 27 years old and already an accomplished rocket scientist (really). He is the author of 350 books (yes, you read that correctly).

Special thanks to my friend, Francis Gary Powers, Jr — founder of the Cold War Museum–for putting this event together and inviting me to participate. It was a wonderful experience.
