Eunice Kennedy founded the special Olympics, ran her family’s philanthropic foundation and was a persistent and effective lobbyist. Why do we know so little about her? We talk with Eileen McNamara about her new book Eunice. Then Tom Dresser joins us to discuss his latest book Whaling on Martha’s Vineyard. Join us for this special rebroadcast of the Point.
