Author Talk: Louis Bayard Introduces his Latest Novel, Jackie and Me (In-Person)

June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Curtis Gallery

We know about Jackie and JFK, and the White House years, but do we know about Jackie and Lem, the loyal and best friend of JFK and the person JFK asked to court Jackie for him?  These were the days of Jacqueline Bouvier leaving Newport and striking out in New York City, becoming an accomplished editor, and winning the attention of a dashing young Congressman from Massachusetts during the years he was running for the Senate.  Narrated through the eyes of Lem, Bayard writes a sweet and generous novel about the young and elusive Jacqueline Bouvier, before she became Jackie.  A real treat for all ages.


Louis Bayard is a New York Times Notable Book author and has been shortlisted for both the Edgar and Dagger awards for his historical thrillers, which include The Pale Blue Eye and Mr. Timothy. His most recent novel was the critically acclaimed Courting Mr. Lincoln. He lives in Washington, DC, and teaches at George Washington University. Visit him online at
