Mary Ferrell Foundation Lands Pre-Release Interview with David Talbot, Author of Brothers: The Hidden History of The Kennedy Years

Ipswich, MA. May 7, 2007 – The Mary Ferrell Foundation (MFF), currently hosting the largest electronic archive on JFK historic content, interviews David Talbot, author of Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. This book, available Tuesday, May 8, 2007, sheds light on the inner life of President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy’s personal quest to find answers to his brother’s shocking death. Brothers is speculated to be one of the most talked about political books of the year.

Different from previous books about the Kennedys, Brothers views the Kennedy presidency and the assassination aftermath through the eyes of Robert Kennedy and his closest associates. The MFF was fortunate to speak with David Talbot one week before the public release of the book as part of the Unredacted series featured on the Mary Ferrell Foundation website.

Go to www.maryferrell.org to hear David Talbot discuss the secret investigation Robert Kennedy launched into his brother’s murder, the intense conflict between the Kennedy administration and its own national security establishment, and Talbot’s thoughts on the “crime of the century” and the failure of American society to come to grips with a conspiracy that both the general public and America’s elite acknowledge.
