Author Talk with Eileen McNamara about Eunice: The Kennedy Who Changed the World

Thursday October 11, 2018
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM


Putlizer Prize Willing author Eileen McNamara speaks this evening, to ask an important question: "What if the Kennedy who left the most profound legacy was not Jack or Bobby or Ted but their formidable sister, Eunice?"   That is Eileen McNamara's contention in Eunice, the Kennedy who Changed the World.  Her biography of Eunice Kennedy Shriver argues that we should remember the fifth child of Joseph and Rose Kennedy for much more than Special Olympics.  She was, in fact, the architect of one of 20th century's great civil rights movements, on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities.  A former columnist at The Boston Globe, Eileen won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary and contributed to the newspaper's coverage of the clergy sex absue scandal in the Catholic Church, McNamara is now Director of the Journalism Program at Brandeis University.  Please join her for a fascinating talk.
