Today marks the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination. Our parents and grandparents’ generations all remember where they were when they found out the tragic and shocking news.
In fact there is a new book out titled, “Where Were You? America Remembers the JFK Assassination.” This book is filled with essays from celebrities, politicians, and media personalities recalling where they were on that fateful day.
There have been countless books written on the Kennedys through the years. And it’s amazing to me the amount of interest there continues to be about this famous political family half a century later.
I have read multiple books myself and continue to do so. Here are a list of books I have already read and reviewed, as well as other books I have read and still have yet to review.
Coming soon reviews on these Kennedy books:
Ted Kennedy Scenes from an Epic Life
Kennedy Weddings by Jay Mulvaney
True Compass by Ted Kennedy
John and Caroline by James Spada
The Kennedy White House by Carl Sferrazza Anthony
Letters to Jackie by Ellen Fitzpatrick
Sons of Camelot by Laurence Leamer
I am an avid Kennedy fan and have been to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC to see the graves of JFK, Jackie, Ted and Bobby, I’ve been to the JFK Presidential Library in Boston, and I’ve been to Dallas where JFK was killed.
I’ve seen multiple documentaries on the family including Kennedy Home Movies and Ethel. Ethel is the widow of Robert Kennedy and the documentary was done by her youngest child of 11, Rory Kennedy. It was fantastically done and made me cry twice. I’ll have to review that one later as well.
In this day and age of reality television and 15 minutes of fame I find it fascinating that this family has captivated the American public’s attention for more than 50 years.
