• Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy

    Culture | Music & Books  

    It’s a side of Jacqueline (correctly pronounced Jack-uh-lean) Kennedy only family and friends knew. A voice so seldom heard, funny and inquisitive, clever and cutting.

    For the first time Americans are afforded the opportunity to hear the shy, quiet former first lady—in her own words—talk about her experiences campaigning with JFK, her frank feelings about the newsmakers of the day (including Martin Luther King Jr. and Charles de Gaulle), intimate thoughts on her marriage to Jack, and a behind-the-scenes look at life in the Kennedy White House in the recently released book Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy.

    The book includes 8 1/2 hours of original audio. It’s a primary source oral history recorded only four months after her husband’s assassination in a series of interviews with friend and longtime Kennedy aide Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. The tapes were kept under seal by the Kennedy Library for the past 47 years and reflects an era when the fascination with “Kennedy” was at its height.

    I believe what you posted made a lot of sense. But, think on this, suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a title to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Unabashedly Prep - CultureMusic & Books is kinda boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write article titles to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I pre-ordered this as soon as I heard about it and it was well worth the purchase. What a fascinating insight into Camelot!
