Press Contact: Brent Carney (617) 514-1662; Brent.Carney@JFKLFoundation.org

On Wednesday, October 26th, from 4:00 until 5:00 p.m., the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum will host Caroline Kennedy as she signs copies of her new childrens book, A Family of Poems: My Favorite Poetry for Children.

The illustrated book of more than one hundred poems for children will be available for sale in the Museum Store of the Kennedy Presidential Library on Columbia Point, Boston. Ms. Kennedy will sign her new book for members of the public from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Museums Pavilion. Children are particularly welcome.

A Family of Poems: My Favorite Poetry for Children is published by Hyperion Books for Children, a unit of Disney Publishing Worldwide. The book is illustrated with watercolors by Jon J Muth.

After publishing The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in 2001, Ms. Kennedy was inspired by the overwhelming response to the book. As a result, Ms. Kennedy created this anthology of more than one hundred poems for children selected from family favorites.

Caroline Kennedy is an attorney and the editor of the New York Times best selling A Patriots Handbook, The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Profiles in Courage for Our Time, and the co-author of The Right to Privacy and In Our Defense: The Bill of Rights in Action.

From 2002-2004, Ms. Kennedy served as chief executive for the Office of Strategic Partnerships for the New York City Department of Education where she helped raise more than $65 million in private support for the citys public schools. She currently serves as the Vice Chair of The Fund for Public Schools.

Ms. Kennedy is the President of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and a member of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award Committee. She is a Director of the Commission on Presidential Debates, and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and serves as Honorary Chairman of the American Ballet Theatre.

Ms. Kennedy was born on November 27, 1957. She is a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia Law School. She lives in New York City with her husband Edwin Arthur Schlossberg, president of Edwin Schlossberg Inc., a multi-disciplinary design company that specializes in interactive exhibit design and museum master-planning. They have three children.
