Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography in Books

The First Lady of Camelot wasn't just a style icon, world traveler and glamorous wife, but also an accomplished editor. Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography in Books ($18) is a look into the last two decades of her life as editor at Viking and Doubleday Books. The quiet feminist, Onassis insisted on getting beyond the glossy women we see in the tabloids and magazines, to get a woman's real story. Commissioning books on dancers, the arts, the royalty of India, Versailles and ancient Egypt - this look into her detailed catalog of publishing projects is a look into her passions and personality.

Thank you for featuring my book! Jackie herself would have loved the paragraph you wrote about her. She saw no contradiction between fashion and feminism.
