Taylor Branch talks about secret Clinton tapes, Feb. 23

February 9, 2010

UNC College alumnus Taylor Branch ’68 will discuss his book  The Clinton Tapes at UNC Wilson Library Special Collection on Feb. 23 at 5 pm. The Pulitzer Prize-winning Martin Luther King biographer was invited to record a series of secret White House conversations with Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001. The President kept the tapes, but the historian published his recollections of what was said, based on his personal notes and recordings made on the drive home. The result is a fascinating though complicated glimpse of an irrepressible politiciain’s perpsective on our time.

Branch’s tapes, transcripts and notes are available to researchers through the University Library’s Southern Historical Collection.  He returns to his alma mater this month to talk about it all.
