Press Release 10/22/19

(Kent, Connecticut)— The Kent Memorial Library takes great pleasure in announcing Dr. Henry Kissinger will be at the Library signing copies of the recently published book Kissinger on Kissinger on Saturday, November 9 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in the Library’s Reading Room.

Kissinger on Kissinger: Reflections on Diplomacy, Grand Strategy, and Leadership was written by Winston Lord with an introduction by Dr. Kissinger.

“Henry Kissinger stands out as a patriot, statesman, and strategic thinker. Winston Lord, who served me with distinction and has been called ‘Kissinger’s Kissinger,’ captures these qualities and more in this book. Kissinger on Kissinger will inform and inspire current and future generations.” —George P. Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of State

“This is a brilliant, timely, and invigorating book. In a series of oral history interviews, the only ones he has ever done, Henry Kissinger offers profound analysis and razor-sharp recollections that show the importance of strategic thinking in navigating global affairs. His lessons are not just about statecraft but also about the courage and character required for leadership.” —Walter S. Isaacson, author of Kissinger: A Biography

“The greatest virtue of this small book of reflections is to show that Henry Kissinger’s greatest legacies to his country are his patriotism, his conception of prudent but effective statecraft, and his unparalleled understanding of how the world works.” —Francis P. Sempa, New York Journal of Books
