Dorothy Wickenden discusses Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West

EVENT:  Dorothy Wickenden appears for her new Book Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 7:00 PM at Unity Temple on The Plaza, Sanctuary, 707 W 47th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64112.  

ABOUT THE BOOK:  In 1916, Dorothy Wickenden’s grandmother, Dorothy Woodruff, and her best friend, Rosamund Underwood, left society life in New York to become teachers in a new school—in the wilds of Northwestern Colorado.  Traveling by train to Denver and then on horseback for three days, they arrived at the remote outpost of Elkhead, where their students, the children of homesteaders, came to school in rags and bare feet.  Central to their experiences is Ferry Carpenter, the shrewd, witty, and occasionally outrageous young lawyer and cattle rancher who hired them—in part as would-be brides for the locals.  Dorothy becomes engaged to a banker in Chicago on their way West, while Rosamund is courted by both Carpenter and his best friend, a handsome mining engineer and the son of one of Denver’s wealthiest industrialists. Nearly 100 years later, Dorothy Wickenden came across the extraordinarily detailed letters these two women sent home to their families, and she reconstructed their adventure.  Nothing Daunted is an intimate, quirky story about two intrepid women on a journey that would change their lives forever.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Dorothy Wickenden has been the Executive Editor of The New Yorker since January 1996.  A former Nieman Fellow at Harvard, Wickenden was National Affairs Editor at Newsweek from 1993-1995 and before that was the longtime Executive Editor at The New Republic.  She lives with her husband and her two daughters in Westchester, New York.

Jean Carnahan discusses A Little Help from My Friends: ...and Other Hilarious Tales of Graying Graciously

EVENT:  Jean Carnahan will discuss her new Book A Little Help from My Friends: ...and Other Hilarious Tales of Graying Graciously on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 7:00 PM at Unity Temple on The Plaza, Sanctuary, 707 W 47th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64112.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Too many older adults look upon their lives as a shrinking island to which they retire surrounded by their aches and pains, regrets, disappointments, and fears.  But not Jean and Edna. They are two gutsy septuagenarians with a hearty outlook on life.  Like ancient seers, they have found the answers to the perplexities of daily living and they are eager to share our insight.  In addition, they review various products they have discovered that lessen “senioritis” or, at least, make it more tolerable.

In these thirty-some, laugh-out-loud essays, Jean and her friend Edna are opinionated and vociferous.  They react to everything from malls, manners, and makeup to birthdays, beauty secrets, and bras.  They take on underwear, handbags, clutter, airport security, grandkids, napping, habits, pets, health, saleswomen, travel, coffee shops, and weddings.  It took Jean and Edna 77 years a piece to figure out life, but they’ve done it with great aplomb.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Jean Carnahan grew up in Washington D.C., and graduated from George Washington University, and she spent most of her life in Missouri, where she worked alongside her husband Mel Carnahan in his 19 political campaigns.  In 2000, Governor Carnahan was elected to the U.S. Senate posthumously, following a plane crash in which he and their oldest son were killed.  Jean went to Washington in his place, becoming the first woman from Missouri to serve in the U.S. Senate.  Now retired, the former First Lady of Missouri is a motivational speaker, political activist, the author of five Books, and creator of the political website www.FiredUpMissouri.com

Clint Hill, Retired U.S. Secret Service Special Agent and Co-Author Lisa McCubbin for Five Days in November

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Clint Hill, Retired U.S. Secret Service Special Agent and Co-Author Lisa McCubbin will give a Multimedia Presentation and discuss in detail their new Book Five Days in November.

ABOUT CLINT HILL:  Clint Hill, Retired U.S. Secret Service Special Agent who was in the Presidential motorcade during the John F. Kennedy assassination on November 22, 1963.  Special Agent Hill remained assigned to Mrs. Kennedy and the children until after the 1964 Presidential election.  He then was assigned to President Lyndon B. Johnson at the White House.  In 1967, when Johnson was still in office, he became the Special Agent in Charge (SAIC) of Presidential protection.  When Richard Nixon came into office, he moved over to SAIC of protection of Vice President Spiro Agnew.  Finally, Special Agent Hill was assigned to headquarters as the Assistant Director of the Secret Service for all protection.  He retired in 1975.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  On November 22, 1963, three shots were fired in Dallas, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and the world stopped for four days.  For an entire generation, it was the end of an age of innocence.  That evening, a photo ran on the front pages of newspapers across the world, showing a Secret Service agent jumping on the back of the presidential limousine in a desperate attempt to protect the President and Mrs. Kennedy.  That agent was Clint Hill. Now Secret Service Agent Clint Hill commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the tragedy with this stunning book containing more than 150 photos, each accompanied by Hill's incomparable insider account of those terrible days.  With poignant narration accompanying rarely seen images, we witness three-year-old John Kennedy Jr.'s pleas to come to Texas with his parents and the rapturous crowds of mixed ages and races that greeted the Kennedys at every stop in Texas.  We stand beside a shaken Lyndon Johnson as he is hurriedly sworn in as the new president.  We experience the first lady's steely courage when she insists on walking through the streets of Washington, D.C., in her husband's funeral procession. A story that has taken Clint Hill fifty years to tell, this is a work of personal and historical scope.  Besides the unbearable grief of a nation and the monumental consequences of the event, the death of JFK was a personal blow to a man sworn to protect the first family, and who knew, from the moment the shots rang out in Dallas, that nothing would ever be the same.
