Schlesinger Jr., with the understanding that they would be kept hidded until the right time.

She felt it was important to share her knowledge and excitement with future generations. It is a privilege for me to honor the memory of my parents by making this unique history available.”

“These interviews offer a remarkable window into the intelligent, courageous, and keen observer that Jacqueline Kennedy was. Readers will be riveted,” said Ellen Archer, President and Publisher of Hyperion.

Jackie’s interviews were held as part of the Jacqueline Kennedy Collection at the Kennedy Library. The collection encompasses correspondence and memos related to White House entertainment, travels abroad and Mrs. Kennedy’s White House restoration project as well as notes on historical preservation.
