Mendham Books, which continues to bring in famous authors, is hosting Caroline Kennedy on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. to sign copies of her new book, "Listening In; The Secret White House Recordings of John F. Kennedy."
The book is actually a multimedia item as John F. Kennedy Library and historian Ted Widmer selected the most compelling recordings for release and they are fully restored and re-mastered onto two 75-minute CDs.
"Listening In" represents a uniquely unscripted, insider account of a president and his cabinet grappling with the day-to-day business of the White House and guiding the nation through a hazardous era of uncertainty.
Beyond the actual recordings, the set includes extensively annotated transcripts of the audio, and a foreword by Caroline Kennedy. "Listening In" offers behind the scenes insight to famous historical moments like the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Space Race, Vietnam, and the arms race.
Only those who have purchased a book from Mendham Books will be permitted inside the store on Thursday.
