Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Before that tragic day on November 22, 1963, the Kennedy years were filled with hope and promise. As the White House gardener put it, they were also filled with children and dogs. The Dogs of Camelot illuminates the inside story of the Kennedys’ lifelong love of dogs and the unparalleled canine corps they brought to the White House. Reed and Lownds had access to rare and previously unpublished photos and stories that present a fascinating angle about the Kennedys that is deeply revealing about their character and compassion. Dr. Margaret Reed, a nationally acclaimed animal training professional, met President Kennedy and his dogs when she was a little girl on vacation in Hyannis Port. Joan Lownds was long-time reporter for The Wilton Bulletin and the author of Man Overboard: Inside the Honeymoon Cruise Murder. See library’s registration link for more details.
