Registration Required

The “Have Book, Will Travel” book club features revolving themes, moderators, and locales. This club is meant to be about book discovery and discussion, as well as socializing with fellow readers who share common interests.

In November, we will meet at the Garland County Library and discuss Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: The Untold Story by Barbara Leaming.

According to the publisher’s description, “Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onasis: The Untold Story is the first book to document Jackie’s thirty-one-year struggle with 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. Until now.”
