Event Details

Join other readers in a discussion of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis by Barbara Leaming. New members are always invited to attend our casual conversations.

Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onasis: The Untold Story is the first book to document Jackie’s thirty-one-year struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here is the woman as she has never been seen before. Barbara Leaming explores the seemingly magical world of Jackie’s youth, her fairy-tale marriage to a wealthy and handsome senator and presidential candidate and her astonishing transformation into a deft political wife and unique First Lady. This spirited young woman’s rejection of the idea of a “safe marriage” as the wife of some socially prominent but utterly predictable man led her to JFK and, in time, international fame. But the trauma of her husband’s murder would damage her far more than has been known.
