Former Special Counsel and Advisor to President John F. Kennedy; Author, Counselor: Life at the Edge of History

In conversation with David Kennedy, Donald J. McLachlan Professor of History, Emeritus, Stanford University

As special counsel to the president, Sorensen had an intimate professional and personal relationship with JFK unlike any of his colleagues. Breaking his decades of silence, he will give an inside look at the legacy of the Camelot era, when some of the most important decisions in American history were made. Sorensen recounts in thrilling detail his experience advising JFK through some of the most dramatic moments in American history, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil rights movement, the decision to go to the moon, and his significant input into JFK’s most important speeches.
