Join us at the JFK Hyannis Museum as we host James Graham, Author of Victura: The Kennedys a Sailboat and the Sea.
To truly understand the dynamics and magic of the Kennedy family, one must understand their passion for sailing and the sea. Many families sail together, but the Kennedys’ relationship with Victura, the 25-foot sloop purchased in 1932, stands apart. Winner of the Chicago Book Review’s Best Books of the Year (2014), author Graham illuminates this year’s new main exhibit at the JFK Hyannis Museum entitled Presidential Summers: The Kennedys on Cape Cod.
James W. Graham worked for some of Illinois’ highest-ranking elected officials, including former Governor Jim Edgar, and also has been a public affairs consultant to major corporations and industry associations. History and sailing are passionate interests that came together in the writing of Victura: the Kennedys, a Sailboat, and the Sea.
He has sailed and raced small sailboats on Lake Michigan for 20 years, the last five on the 24-foot sloop Venturous.
