Through cooperation with the Kennedy Library, the authors have accessed rare and previously unpublished photos and stories that present a fascinating angle about the Kennedys that is deeply revealing about their character and compassion.

Sunday, June 10th at 2pm - Discussion & Signing with Cortney Davis -Taking Care of Time

 

For poet and nurse practitioner Cortney Davis, the truth revealed through poetry is similar to what she has experienced in the heightened and urgent dramas that occur in health care--those suspended moments in which a dying heart might be revived or unbearable suffering relieved. We are vulnerable, her poems say, and we are dependent on one another--on the ways in which we care or fail to care for one another, in how we love or fail to love. In poems that are sensual, emotionally searing, and yet unfailingly tender, Davis shines a caregiver's light on the most intimate details of the human body and the spirit within--how the flesh might betray, how it endures, and how ultimately it triumphs.
