VIDEO: Oliver Stone's "W" Followed by DVD Release of "JFK" Along with "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings" documentary

Right after the much publicized release of Oliver Stone's "W" movie on the life our current president, Warner Bros will be re-releasing on DVD Stone's earlier film involving another president "JFK" along with a brand-new documentary "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings" based on my biography published by Basic Books. The newly re-issued book looks at the impact of the Kennedys on the 2008 presidential races, their support of Barack Obama, and Ted Kennedy's battle with cancer.

ICONS Festival Outside Boston Celebrates Irish-American Music and Arts

The Irish Cultural Centre of New England was kind enough to host my talk about "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings" a few years back. And now this coming weekend, the Centre is hosting ICONS, the Irish Music and Arts Festival, September 12-14, including such performers as the Boston Kiltics seen here in this video. I'm hoping to see return soon with the new Warner Bros. two-hour documentary "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings" based on my book and debuting Nov. 10 at Boston College.
