Condolences from a grieving nation
Like most folks who grew up in the 60′s, I am most fascinated with the era of Camelot and JFK and all of that. My special guest tomorrow (Friday) afternoon at 4:30 on the Puffman Show is the author of “Letters To Jackie: Condolences from a Grieving Nation”. She’s Ellen Fitzpatrick, a professor and scholar specializing in modern American political and intellectual history, and is the author and editor of 6 books. In “Letter To Jackie”, The Prof has culled about 250 of these extraordinary letters into 3 parts which serve to be a remarkable human record that perfectly preserves the heart-wrenching grief and the unwavering faith of the nation in a time of crisis. Fitzpatrick’s “Letter To Jackie” is the first book to ever examine this extraordinary collection of letters and to create an incredible portrait of the nation’s grief from such a cross-section of American life. I’ll be giving away a copy of this remarkable book following tomorrow afternoon’s interview. Looking forward to seeing you on the Puffman Show.
