Douglas Kennedy ’76 was one of three writers commissioned by BBC Radio 4  to write a short story commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Cuban Missle Crisis. Kennedy’s story, “A Cold War,” is set in October 1962 and, according to the author, “is very much a remembrance of things past.”

The BBC broadcast a reading of the story by actor Nathan Osgood on October 19.
