Tuesday: Author Of ‘The Suspect’ — Detailing 1996 Olympic Bombing — To Speak In St. Louis

15 hours ago

This interview will be on “St. Louis on the Air” over the noon hour Tuesday. This story will be updated after the show. You can listen live.


Kevin Salwen is the co-author of a book about the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta. The book —“The Suspect: An Olympic Bombing, the FBI, the Media, and Richard Jewell, the Man Caught in the Middle” — was, in part, the inspiration for a controversial film about the bombing and the man who was falsely accused for it.

On Tuesday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Sarah Fenske will talk with Salwen, who will be speaking about his book at Central Reform Congregation.
