The Dogs of Camelot illuminates the inside story of the Kennedys’ lifelong love of dogs and the unparalleled canine corps they brought to the White House. The American public only saw glimpses of the many Kennedy pets because of the zealous way Jackie Kennedy guarded her family’s privacy. Through cooperation with the Kennedy Library, the authors have access to rare and previously unpublished photos and stories that present a fascinating angle about the Kennedys that is deeply revealing about their character and compassion.
Dr. Margaret Reed, a nationally acclaimed animal training professional, met President Kennedy and his dogs when she was a little girl on vacation in Hyannis Port. She also sits on the board of Cornell University’s James A. Baker Institute for Animal Health and is a member of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum President’s Council.
Joan Lownds, an award-winning reporter for the Greenwich Post and other Connecticut newspapers and magazines, has covered the honeymoon cruise murder since it broke. She was a reporter for the Greenwich Citizen when George Smith was murdered in July, 2005, and his homicide led her to investigate the unregulated, $40-billion a year cruise industry in a series of newspaper articles. These formed the basis of her book.
Ms. Lownds has also worked for the New Haven Advocate and other Connecticut newspapers. She was the first woman ever published in Baseball Digest, with a profile of legendary pitcher, Smokey Joe Wood, in 1981.
