Dorothy’s August Recommendation

When We Were the Kennedys: A Memoir of Mexico, Maine by Monica Wood

when we were the kennedysRFPL owns this in ebook – Check it out now or request a print copy.

Dorothy Says:

“This memoir struck a cord with me.  Our stories aren’t the same, but I felt connected to the author nonetheless.  Her sense of time and place came through clearly as she recounted her family’s experience of losing their father unexpectedly, just months before JFK’s assassination.  If you enjoyed Haven Kimmel’s A Girl Named Zippy, Wood’s memoir should also appeal to you.”
