Author David Nasaw talks about his book, The Patriarch: The Remarkable Life and Turbulent Times of Joseph P. Kennedy, in which he recounts the life of Joseph P. Kennedy, patriarch of the political family that included President John F. Kennedy and Senators Robert F. Kennedy and Edward Kennedy. The author examines Mr. Kennedy’s careers in business and politics, which included ventures in Wall Street and Hollywood and founding chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Mr. Nasaw also explores Joseph Kennedy’s resistance to American entry into World War II during his tenure as ambassador to Great Britain, a stance that led to public criticism and hurt his relationship with President Roosevelt. David Nasaw spoke at the Philadelphia Free Library. close
