Jacqueline Kennedy tapes and book tell of Camelot

The book is getting a star-powered rollout, with a prime-time, two-hour special with ABC News' Diane Sawyer Tuesday at 9 p.m. -- and a sneak preview by Whoopi Goldberg on The View. In that audio clip, Jackie describes her request to stay in Washington during the Cuban missile crisis, rather than being sent to Camp David in Maryland. Even if there's no room in the president's bomb shelter. "Please, then I just want to be on the lawn when it happens -- you know -- but I just want to be with you, and I want to die with you, and the children do too -- than live without you," she says.

For more, you can hear Caroline Kennedy discuss the book in Washington on Sept. 26. the event, co-sponsored by the Politics & Prose bookstore and George Washington University, will be held at Lisner Auditorium, 730 21st Street, NW.
