Many authors have explored the Kennedy family, but one little-explored member is Rosemary, the disabled daughter who was kept away from the public eye for most of her life. Kate Clifford Larson remedies this situation with her book, Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter. In it, she describes the medical errors and family desperation that doomed Rosemary to a life of problems and eventual lobotomy. Join us for a discussion of the life of this daughter of Joseph Kennedy, father of Robert and John F. Kennedy.
Kate Clifford Larson will appear with the Thurber House on October 5, 2016.
