New York Times bestselling author Ed Klein will speak at St. Francis College on Thursday, Nov. 17. Klein will talk about his astonishing new book “Guilty as Sin,” wherein he reveals the truth about Clinton’s health and what might have prevented her from winning the presidential race. Klein will talk about the 2016 election results with Scholar-in-Residence Fred Siegel, a Senior Fellow at Manhattan College and author of “The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Undermined the Middle Class.”

Klein’s new book further explores the real story behind Hillary’s email scandals and the dirty political games that have kept her one step ahead of the law — until now. Klein reveals what the FBI’s team of 100-plus investigators really found on Clinton’s server; how FBI Director James Comey personally went to the Oval Office to warn President Obama against any attempt to intervene in the investigation; Comey’s secret plan to go around the Justice Department and shocking new evidence of corruption.

With unparalleled access to sources close to Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Comey and many others, Klein’s new book offers rare insights into Clinton’s failed campaign and what might have sabotaged her run for the White House.

After serving an apprenticeship as a copy boy for the New York Daily News, Klein went on to earn a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, which awarded him a traveling fellowship to Japan. There, he learned to speak Japanese and traveled throughout Asia as a foreign correspondent for United Press International.

Upon his return to New York, Klein wrote for Newsweek, where he became foreign editor and then assistant managing editor with jurisdiction over foreign and military affairs.

From Newsweek, he joined The New York Times. As editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine, he led this flagship publication of the Sunday Times to new heights of public interest and editorial excellence. During his editorship, The New York Times Magazine won the first Pulitzer Prize in its history.

Klein’s previous books include “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,” “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas” and “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House.” Klein also wrote the bestsellers “All Too Human: The Love Story of Jack and Jackie Kennedy,” “The Kennedy Curse” and “The Truth About Hillary.”

Regarding “Unlikeable,” Donald Trump proclaimed, “A great new book has been written about Crooked Hillary. Read it and you will never be able to vote for her.” Political commentator Dick Morris called Klein “a one-man CIA,” adding, “He is always accurate and ferrets out the truth. He explains what is going on behind the scenes with uncanny insight and even profundity.”

Klein will speak at 11:10 a.m. at St. Francis College, Room 4202, 180 Remsen St. in Brooklyn Heights. The event is free and open to the public.
