A unique perspective on the influence and enduring fascination of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
What Jackie Taught Us offers insights about how Jackie lived with poise, grace, and zest, including wisdom about image and style, focus, courage and vision, men, marriage, and motherhood.
After more than a decade in print, this commemorative edition features fourteen new essays from notable individuals amplifying the ways in which Jackie’s life has influenced them -- and society at large -- over the past fifty years, including contributions from syndicated columnists Liz Smith and Marguerite Kelly; authors Edna O’Brien, A.E. Hotchner and Malachy McCourt; president emeritus of the Municipal Art Society of New York, Kent Barwick; and former Metropolitan Museum of Art executive, Ashton Hawkins.
