The recipient of five Emmy Awards, Greenfield worked as a speechwriter in the 1968 Presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy and has served as a floor reporter or anchor-booth analyst for every national convention since 1988. He is the author of 12 books, including Then Everything Changed, an alternate history that “turns these twists of fate into accelerating historical snowballs that rumble through our recent history, altering the social landscape in ways both small and large” (New York Times). If Kennedy Lived, published on the 50th anniversary of his assassination, imagines the political and cultural implications of Kennedy’s second term.
