At the behest of her mother, Jackie, Caroline Kennedy would have to memorize poems for Mother's Day, Christmas, birthdays, and other special occasions. Far from making her resent poetry, the tradition gave her a deep-seated love for it and inspired her just-published collection of poems reflecting on womanhood, She Walks in Beauty: A Woman's Journey Through Poems. She came on The Late Show with David Letterman last night to share stories of her mother, read a selection, and talk about how the book came together. Watch it now. If you enjoy it, you might want to pick up a copy as a Mother's Day gift!
