Author Eileen McNamara to give talk about her book called Eunice, the Kennedy who Changed the World
Biography of Eunice Kennedy to be shared at Milton Public Library
On October 11th at 7:00 p.m., author Eileen McNamara will give a talk about her book called Eunice, the Kennedy who Changed the World (Simon and Schuster, c2018). 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. McNamara, a former columnist at The Boston Globe, won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary and contributed to the newspaper’s coverage of the clergy sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. She is now director of the Journalism Program at Brandeis University. Books will be available for purchase and signing at this program.
