Listen to author Larry Tye’s stories from his new bestselling book, “Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon.” David Nasay wrote in the The New York Times Book Review: “We are in Larry Tye’s debt for bringing back to life the young presidential candidate who . . . for a brief moment, almost half a century ago, instilled hope for the future in angry, fearful Americans.”
History remembers Robert F. Kennedy as a racial healer, a tribune for the poor, and the last progressive knight of a bygone era of American politics. But Kennedy’s enshrinement in the liberal pantheon was actually the final stage of a journey that had its beginnings in the conservative 1950s. In Bobby Kennedy, Larry Tye peels away layers of myth and misconception to paint a complete portrait of this singularly fascinating figure.
Larry has entertained and enlightened audiences with talks on his previous bestseller books, including his bios of Satchel Paige and Superman. Tye runs the Boston-based Health Coverage Fellowship, which helps the media do a better job reporting on critical issues like public health, mental health, and high-tech medicine. From 1986 to 2001, he was an award-winning reporter at The Boston Globe. He served as the Globe’s environmental reporter, roving national writer, investigative reporter, and sports writer. A graduate of Brown University, Tye was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University in 1993-94. He taught journalism at Boston University, Northeastern, and Tufts.+ More... - Less...
