Title: Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy with Joesph Kahn and Jenna Russell

Description: Boston Globe staffers who have reported on this famous family for decades joined to write this perceptive and compelling biography of a man who initially responded poorly to the expectations of his family and country, and yet emerged as a respected family patriarch, elder statesman and symbol of traditional liberalism. Jenna Russell (who contributed the chapter on Chappaquiddick) and Joesph Kahn (who covers the tumultuous 80s) read and will discuss the senator’s life and this book project. Q&A and book signing follow.
