2 books written by JFK

Sun Feb 23, 2014 2:43 pm

I'm in the middle of reading "The Kenndy's, America's Emerald Kings", fascinating book..thoroughly enjoying it and learning such a lot about the persecution of the Irish, both on home soil and in America...

I'm wondering if anyone has read the two books that Jack wrote in the 1950's and their thoughts?

Profiles in Courage in 55, (which got a Pultizer)

A Nation of Immigrants 58

Have you read the one I'm reading? Thought it was the best place to start.....right back at the beginning.
The next one I've got is "The Kennedy, half century:The Presidency,Assassination,and lasting legacy of John F Kennedy.

Currently I'm reading Cold Case Kennedy. But this one is in Dutch. I do believe there's going to be an english translation soon. Fascinating read....
