Robin Young, host of WBUR’s Here & Now, talks with Boston Globe reporters Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy about their new book, “Whitey Bulger: America’s Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt That Brought Him to Justice” at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, Mass.

In their riveting account of James “Whitey” Bulger’s rise from a South Boston housing project to become the most wanted fugitive of his generation, Cullen and Murphy draw on exclusive access and previously undisclosed documents to get at the truth of Bulger’s criminal career. From his childhood in a South Boston housing project, through his building of a criminal empire, to his 16 years on the run and his ultimate arrest in Santa Monica, their book paints the fullest picture yet of the notorious criminal.

Tickets cost $5 and are available from the Harvard Book Store, which is sponsoring the event. A screening of “The Departed” (tickets available separately here) will follow the discussion.
