Join us for a conversation with Lawrence Haas – a Clinton White House official and now a columnist and author – on his new book, The Kennedys in the World: How Jack, Bobby, and Ted Remade America’s Empire. Open to friends and neighbors.

From an early age, the brothers developed a deep understanding of the world’s different peoples, cultures, and ideologies; a keen appreciation for the challenges that such differences created for the United States; and a strong desire to reshape America’s response to them. And, for more than six decades, the brothers shaped broad issues of war and peace as well as the U.S. response to almost every major global challenge of their times: the Soviet Union and China, the Cold War and Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Chile, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Korea and Vietnam, South Africa and Northern Ireland, and Iraq (twice). As the brothers remade America’s empire, they invariably changed the world.

 

Haas writes widely and appears frequently on TV and radio. Over the years, his pieces have appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Newsweek, and scores of other places. His most recent previous book, Harry and Arthur: Truman, Vandenberg, and the Partnership That Created the Free World, was named a 2016 “Book of the Year” by the Wall Street Journal.
