Thurston Clarke talked about his book, JFK’s Last Hundred Days: The Transformation of a Man and the Emergence of a Great President, in which he recalls the last one hundred days of President John F. Kennedy’s life, which began on the day his two-day old son, Patrick died on August 9, 1963. In his book, the author reports that during the final months of Kennedy’s life he gained a greater understanding of the civil rights movement, sought a better relationship with the Soviet Union, and presented his doubts on the U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Thurston Clarke spoke at Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C. close
