Slip this charmer into your tote bag this summer. College co-eds, Lee and Jacqueline Bouvier, write and sketch their way across Europe in pursuit of the “Lah De Dah” set in One Special Summer. This slender volume shows that travel can still be a glamorous affair (it was 1951, afterall).
Read it and you’ll realize that Jacqueline really was following her heart when she became a book editor 25 years later. All of her expressive talents aligned in publishing.
*Okay, so “Society Pages” does follow the rich and famous every now and then, despite what my bio says up top. But this is The Hamptons of yore, not Kelly Ripa or Lindsay Lohan.
