The woman behind the famous name

Boston College grad Margaret Cardillo’s new children’s book takes a look at the life of the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. In Just Being Jackie (Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins, 2018), Cardillo highlights not only the style and grace of the former first lady, but also her work as a journalist, a preservationist, and an editor of award-winning books. This is the second picture book by Cardillo and illustrator Julia Denos, whose first book was the award-winning Just Being Audrey, about Audrey Hepburn. A former children’s book editor, Cardillo now teaches screenwriting at the University of Miami.
