A Celebration of Freedom: JFK and the New Frontier is a new book that chronicles the life and legacy of the 35th President of the United States. The book begins with the birth announcement, recorded for the second child born to Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy. Although she had decided to name the baby in honor of her father-John Fitzgerald, he would almost immediately be known to friends and loved ones, and then later, to the world, as Jack. The story told in this book is in many ways, well-known-for what name in American history has be examined, absorbed, digested, and dissected like that of Kennedy? If you were there during those heady 'thousand days,' you will perhaps rediscover that which you thought lost in the haze of faded memories, yellowed press clippings, and crackled newsreels. If, like me, your prime came in the aftermath of Camelot, you can stand on the sidewalk outside, press your face against the glass and get a glimpse into the window of an America that was, and is, for better or worse, no more. Whatever the case, you will find that the book examines a story that is uniquely American. It is a story of power, of hope, of change, and epic tragedy. It is a snapshot-a period of history, ripe with upheaval and discovery, frozen forever in our collective archive. More than PT-109 or the Bay of Pigs-- Civil Rights or the 'Grassy Knoll,' the story that unfolds in this book at times appears to be barely believable, but at the same time, uncannily true.
