The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum will be hosting a screen viewing of the HBO Documentary “Ethel” on July 17.  The event will be held at 6:00pm at the Cape Codder Resort & Spa in Hyannis, MA.

The screen viewing is part of the museum’s ongoing Speaker Series.  Rory Kennedy, the documentary’s filmmaker and producer, will be in attendance at the event.

The film’s official synopsis describes the documentary as a personal portrait of Ethel Kennedy’s political awakening, the life she shared with Robert F.
