November 27 ~  Love of Literature and Language A Family Christmas

"One of the greatest gifts my brother and I received from my mother was her love of literature and language. With their boundless energy, libraries open the door to these worlds and so many others. I urge young and old alike to embrace all that libraries have to offer." ~ Caroline Kennedy

The surviving light of America's Camelot, Caroline Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg (1957-) was born on this day in New York City, the daughter of John and Jacqueline Kennedy. She moved into the White House with her family when she was three.

A writer, editor, and lawyer, she once said, "As much as we need a prosperous economy, we also need a prosperity of kindness and decency."

With a commitment to carrying on her father's legacy, Caroline established the Profile in Courage Awards in 1989 to honor political courage and inspire leaders to follow their conscience.

She said, "My father believed in the power of words to lead, to inspire, and to bring about change in the world."

With her mother's passion for books, Caroline has written several best-sellers and continues to advocate for literacy. She lights the way with her public service. "My mother took great pride in the fact that the Kennedy Library is the home of the papers of Ernest Hemingway, whose definition of courage as 'grace under pressure' was my father's favorite," she said.

This mother of three has been married to artist Edwin Schlossberg since 1983. In November 2007, singer Neil Diamond revealed his hit Sweet Caroline (1969) was inspired by a childhood photo of Caroline.

"Now more than ever, I have learned that, when people die, they truly do live throughout those who love them," she said.

Be kind to yourselfEmbrace literacy.
