Senator Edward Kennedy

Last Lion by Boston Globe writers
Regardless of your political point of view, there is no denying that Massachusetts has lost one of its enduring political icons, when Senator Edward Kennedy died late last night (Tuesday, August 25). Senator Kennedy was extremely vocal about the issues in which he believed and was respected by his fellow senators on both sides of the aisle. He also represented a family who met tragedy and was considered by some to be America’s royal family. Boston.com has an extensive section regarding the life and death of Ted Kennedy. There is also a repeat of the Globe series, “Ted Kennedy: His Fall and Rise”.

The library, of course, has several materials regarding Ted Kennedy as well as the entire Kennedy family. The three latest are: Ted Kennedy: The Dream that Never Died, Ted Kennedy: Scenes from an Epic Life, and Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy. Out of the three, Last Lion, based on the earlier referenced Boston Globe series is probably the most extensive portrait of the senator. It details his accomplishments, as well as past scandals.

If you wanted to find out more about Ted Kennedy, you can also do so by visiting the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. Reserve a pass for the museum through our library. You can either do that online or by contacting our children’s room at 781-314-3425 X4.
