Linda Corley, an Emmy Award-winning writer, and a close friend of Bob Davidoff, interviewed him before his death in 2004, which brought to light the wonderful stories associated with the many never-before seen photos of the Kennedy family in Palm Beach. The interview provided the anecdotes behind the pictures and captures many of the family's unscripted moments, from Jackie surprising her husband on the tarmac of the Palm Beach airport to Rose leading a family sing-along in her home.
From fancy balls, formal benefits, and important charity events such as the Special Olympics, to lounging on the presidential yacht the Honey Fitz, shopping on Worth Avenue, and Easter Mass at St. Edward's Church, THE KENNEDY FAMILY ALBUM paints a personal portrait of the daily lives of America's First Family.
