Today's Featured Book and Contest: CAPTURING CAMELOT: Stanley Tretick's Iconic Images of the Kennedys, by Kitty Kelley

With an illuminating, moving text and more than 200 remarkable photos --- some iconic, some never-before-seen --- JFK and his family seem to live again in this beautiful keepsake of a book.

An archetypical photojournalist, Stanley Tretick was sent by United Press International to follow the Kennedy campaign of 1960. The photographer soon befriended the candidate and took many of JFK's best pictures during this time. When Kennedy took office, Tretick was given extensive access to the White House, and the picture magazine Look hired him to cover the president and his family. Tretick is best known today for the photographs he took of President Kennedy relaxing with his children. His photographs helped define the American family of the early '60s and lent Kennedy an endearing credibility that greatly contributed to his popularity.

Accompanied by an insightful, heartwarming essay from Kitty Kelley --- Tretick's close friend --- about the relationship between the photographer and JFK, this collection includes some of the most memorable images of America's Camelot and evokes the uniquely hopeful historical era from which it emerged.
