  1. Oh wow! That sounds like a fabulous lecture! Jackie’s gown, how beautiful and how special, too, that it has a much larger cultural significance than just being Jackie O’s.

  2. Looks fantastic, I would love to go and see that. I adored Jackie’s wedding dress, I adore the whole Jackie look in general.

  3. Wow! Just looked up Rosemary Reed Miller to do some reading on her. She’s DJ Spooky’s mom! Not only has she chronicled history, she has quite a story to tell, too.

  4. Dear Cidell, Thank you for your wonderful, inspirational blog. I wondered if you knew that the lecture, Threads of Time, must be inspired by the books, Threads of Time, now in its third edition. I just bough it on Amazon and look forward to reading it.

    Your admirer, Lynn

  5. Cidell, I heard her a couple of years ago. I enjoyed it tremendously. But if I could get off work on Wednesday, I go again in a New York minute. She used to own a boutique in DC until rents went crazy. I’mjoing Cidell here, if some one can go, please do! I just realized it’s in February, I might be able to swing it.
    Thanks for the heads up!
