Amber Hunt, Reporter, Cincinnati Enquirer.
Hosted by Katherine and Richard Rosenthal, Hyde Park
The Kennedy wives saw history up close, and possessed enviable wealth, wit, charisma, and style. They also experienced tragedy on a level most of us can’t imagine. The ways in which they faced and survived their misfortunes inspire admiration, empathy, and fascination. Amber Hunt, an investigative journalist for the Cincinnati Enquirer, will discuss the revelations uncovered when researching the women behind the Kennedy men for the New York Times-bestselling book, The Kennedy Wives: Trials and Tragedy in America’s Most Public Family. Hunt was recently featured in Wired magazine and USA Today as host of the hit true crime podcast “Accused.” She has appeared in several television shows highlighting true crimes, including Dateline NBC and A&E’s Crime Stories and is the author of Dead But Not Forgotten, All-American Murder, and See How Much You Love Me. Hunt wrote The Kennedy Wives with co-author David Batcher.
The spectacular view of the Ohio River is challenged only by the unique outsider art collection within the Rosenthal home. Designed by Carl Strauss and built in 1947, the home was influenced by the Bauhaus movement. Originally occupied by the architect himself, the house has had only one other owner, the Rosenthal family.
