WACCABUC, N.Y. -- Waccabuc resident Philip Kunhardt, Founding Director of New York University’s Center for the Study of Transformative Lives, will introduce historian Timothy Naftali, author of the forthcoming “Before the Glass Shattered: Kennedy in the White House,” for a public lecture on Tuesday, Oct. 6.
The talk, “Demystifying JFK,” will take place in the first-floor screening room of NYU’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, located at 53 Washington Square South, between Thompson and Sullivan Streets.
Kunhardt, who has also been a resident of Ossining and Chappaqua, said Naftali will be drawing on his expert knowledge of the White House tapes and archives to reveal new perspectives on JFK’s leadership. Nafali was head of the Presidential Recordings Program at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center.
The Center's next event is Nov. 17 and will feature Author Anne Heller who will speak about Hannah Arendt, a German-born American political theorist.
