JFK'S LAST HUNDRED DAYS by Thurston Clarke

August 22, 2013

Thurston Clarke spoke about his book, JFK's Last Hundred Days, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, August 22, 2013.

JFK’s legacy lies as much in the promise he didn’t live to fulfill as in what he actually accomplished. In this rich narrative history of Kennedy’s final three months, Clarke, author of books on both John and Robert Kennedy, looks at the president’s work on civil rights and nuclear-test-ban treaties, as well his personal resolve to be a better family man after the death of his infant son, to suggest what Kennedy might have achieved.
