NEW YORK (AP) — "Camera Girl," an upcoming book on Jacqueline Kennedy's early years as a columnist, draws on newspaper archives and interviews with friends and colleagues.

"Camera Girl: How Miss Bouvier Used Imagination & Subversion To Invent Jackie Kennedy" is scheduled to come out in spring 2021, Gallery Books announced Thursday, which would have been the 66th wedding anniversary of Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy. The author is Carl Sferrazza Anthony, a leading historian of first ladies whose previous books include "Kennedy White House."
