Updated on January 31, 2012

The Jackie Kennedy interviews in 1964, less than 6 months after President John F. Kennedy's assassination, will come out in print, audio and kindle form this September (2011). The 400 page book, 8 CD audio set, or the kindle e-book version details conversations held with historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr in a private setting.

Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy

by Caroline Kennedy

Growing up, I was made keenly aware of the massive impact the Kennedy family had on The United States of America. When my mother, aunts and grandmother spoke of that era and those events, a distant look would come over their eyes. They were instantly re-livable memories. And though their voices were heard in the present, their hearts and minds were whisked away to a not so distant past, but a radically different America. It was Camelot.

Caroline Kennedy's book, Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy is a candid account of the mind of Jacqueline Kennedy soon after this national tragedy. An inside look at an incredible time in our Nation's history, and soon after the light of Camelot was put out.


President John F. Kennedy

Though Kennedy was president for less than 3 years, JFK seemed to transcend his elitist upbringing and was able to connect with the baby boomer generation and their parents. A connection that still tends to dominate conversations at certain times of the year. The images are stored in the minds of many of us over the age of 30: a black stretch limousine careening towards Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. The President of the United States with Jackie Kennedy dressed in pink, waving from the rear most seat to throngs of Texans along the motorcade route. Followed by the next terrifying images...and sadness.

Great gifts are difficult to find. The more special a person is, the harder the search for the perfect gift. My mother is impossible to shop for. What do you get someone who seems to have everything? “I have everything I need” is her retort when it comes to prospective gifts. Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries have me in fits trying to buy a gift for my mother or grandmother. This year I found a phenomenal gift for both.

Jackie Kennedy Speaks Candidly

While most of the revelations contained in this book aren't too shocking or controversial, this edited set of interviews opens a window to Jackie's perceptions of the time. She was a consciously private person, maintaining an air of enigmatic magnetism for several decades. Such a passionate and vivid recollection of the early 1960's from the First Lady's perspective is both a treat and an honor to experience.
