Rose Marie “Rosemary” Kennedy was the first daughter born to Rose Fitzgerald and Joseph P Kennedy Sr. At the age of 23 she underwent a labotomy which left her unable to walk, talk or perform basic human tasks and was sent to rural Wisconsin to a Catholic run home for the mentally disabled. There she was looked after for 35 years by Sister Paulus Koehler, the authors aunt. The Missing Kennedy is an insightful, important and poignant memoir that chronicles Rose’s life and includes many never-before-seen private photos, Kennedy quotes from the author’s interviews, and anecdotes about Rosemary and her famous family.

Come and hear author Elizabeth Koehler-Pentacoff discuss the research and work behind the book (recently featured cover story in PEOPLE Magazine Sept 14th) and share her own personal relationship to Rosemary.
