about the author: Mark K. Shriver

Mark Shriver is well known for his family ties.  He’s the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, brother of Maria and son of Sargent and Eunice Shriver.

He is a former two-term Maryland state legislator, President of Save the Children Action Network in Washington DC, and a bestselling author of a memoir about his father called:  A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver. His newest book touches another deeply private area of his life:  His relationship with Catholicism. Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis is as much a retracing of Francis’ journey to the Vatican as it is personal exploration for the author.
