Description

In her compelling and intimate portrait, presidential historian Barbara Perry captures Rose Kennedy’s essential contributions to the incomparable Kennedy dynasty. This biography—the first to draw on an invaluable cache of Rose’s newly released diaries and letters—unearths the complexities behind the impeccable persona she showed the world. The woman who emerges in these pages is a fascinating character: savvy about her family’s reputation and resilient enough to persevere through the unfathomable tragedies that befell her. Perry is senior fellow and associate professor in the Miller Center’s Presidential Oral History Program and is a well-known scholar of the U.S. Supreme Court and the American presidency. A book signing will follow her Forum. Photo Credit: Robert Capon
