Barbara A. Perry - Rose Kennedy: The Life and Times of a Political Matriarch

Monday, July 29, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Overshadowed by the prominence of her husband and sons, Rose Kennedy was in fact a strong-willed woman. She defied her father—Boston mayor John Fitzgerald—to marry Kennedy, stage-managed media events with her family, and campaigned for her sons. Perry, a senior fellow in the University of Virginia’s Presidential Oral History Program and a biographer of Jacqueline Kennedy, draws on her subject’s previously unavailable diaries and letters to give an intimate, multi-faceted picture of the matriarch’s life.
