Assassination of a Saint – Book Launch
April 3, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Author Matt Eisenbrandt will be attending at St. James Community Square (3214 W 10th Ave, Vancouver) for the launch of his new book on the assassination of Oscar Romero.
On March 24, 1980, the assassination of El Salvador’s Archbishop Óscar Romero rocked that nation and the world. Despite the efforts of many in El Salvador and beyond, those responsible for Romero’s murder were never punished for their heinous crime. Assassination of a Saint is the thrilling story of an international team of lawyers, private investigators, and human-rights experts that fought to bring justice for the slain hero more than two decades after his death. In this gripping narrative, Matt Eisenbrandt recounts how he and his colleagues interviewed witnesses and former members of death squads while searching for evidence on the conspirators and those who financed them. As the team worked towards the only court verdict ever reached for the martyred archbishop’s murder, they uncovered information with implications for El Salvador and the United States to this day.
