Kennedy Reads Mom's Favorite Poems
Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg last week read to a group of about 500 people from a newly published collection of her late mother's favorite poems, "The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis." The site was the Boston Public Library, reports the Associated Press, and the former first daughter spoke about the importance of poetry, reading and family. Among the poems she chose were Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's "Paul Revere's Ride" and Langston Hughes's "Let America Be America Again." A large part of the anthology is made up of poems from a scrapbook her mother, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (who died in 1994, at the age of 64), started when Caroline, 44, and her brother, John F. Kennedy Jr. (who died in 1999, at the age of 38), were young. Kennedy, a mother of three, is a lawyer and co-author of "The Right to Privacy," a book on the Bill of Rights. She is married to Edwin Scholssberg, 56, a museum and theme park designer. They live in New York City.
