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

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.

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.
