Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter

The Nevins Library welcomes Bestselling Author Kate Larson.

She’ll be here to talk about her new book that details the life of Rosemary Kennedy.

Do you know the story of Rosemary Kennedy, the eldest daughter of Joe and Rose Kennedy? Come hear Kate Larson, author of the book Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter, tells us Rosemary’s story.

Kate Larson brings Rosemary alive as a girl adored but left far behind by her competitive siblings. She reveals both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then—as the family’s standing reached an apex—the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early twenties. Finally, Larson illuminates Joe’s decision to have Rosemary lobotomized at age twenty-three and the family’s complicity in keeping the secret.

Copies of the book will be available for sale after the talk.
