Louis Begley  gave an exceptional presentation on the complex forces at work in France at the turn of the 20th Century, which fomented the unjust conviction and imprisonment of Jewish officer, Captain Alfred Dreyfus.  Begley drew parallels  with events in the United States at the turn of the 21st Century.  If you missed it, stay tuned for an upcoming East End Ink program. A condensed version of the talk will also be available via podcast.
