Whether you’re intrigued by political history or politics right now, Jake Tapper has the scoop.

The premiere event for the new Tampa Bay Times Author Series focuses on Tapper’s new bestselling novel, The Devil May Dance, a fast-paced political thriller that dishes about famous figures like Sinatra, Robert Kennedy and Sam Giancana — and how they were linked.

I’ll be in conversation with Tapper in a live virtual interview via Zoom on June 9. Times columnist Stephanie Hayes will host, and there will be a viewer Q&A during which you can ask Tapper which Hollywood tales in the book are fact or fiction. Or you can ask him about his day job as the lead Washington anchor for CNN, host of the weekday news show The Lead With Jake Tapper and co-host of the Sunday morning public affairs program State of the Union.

Book sales will be handled by local independent bookstores Oxford Exchange and Tombolo Books. A portion of proceeds will support the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading.

Tickets are available now at Purchasers will receive their link to the interview a few days before the event.
