In the weeks and months following the assassination of her husband, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy received more than one million letters. The impact of President Kennedy's death was so immense that people from every station in life wrote to her, sharing their feelings of sympathy, sorrow, and hope. With letters from political luminaries such as Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr., and Charles De Gaulle; Hollywood stars like Lauren Bacall, Vivian Leigh, and Gene Kelly; foreign dignitaries including Queen Elizabeth II, the King and Queen of Greece, and the Prince of Monaco; and celebrities like Ezra Pound, Noel Coward, Babe Paley, Langston Hughes, Oleg Cassini, Josephine Baker. This is more than just a compendium of letters. Dear Mrs. Kennedy uses these many voices to tell the unforgettable story of those fateful four days in November, when the world was struck with shock and sadness. Filled with emotion, patriotism, and insight, the letters are a poignant time capsule of one of the seminal events of the twentieth century. Dear Mrs. Kennedy offers a diverse portrait not only of the aftermath of the assassination, but of the Kennedy mystique that continues to captivate the world.
