Author Talk with Meryl Gordon, "Bunny Mellon: The Life Of An American Style Legend"

Meryl Gordon, author of the best selling books 'Mary Astor Regrets' and 'The Phantom of Fifth Avenue' presents a new biography of Bunny Mellon, the style icon, American aristocrat and long time Nantucket summer resident.

Mellon designed the White House Rose Garden for her friend JFK and served as a living witness to 20th Century American history, operating in the high-level arenas of politics, diplomacy, art and fashion. She died in 2014 at age 103. Notoriously press shy during her life, Gordon received access to Bunny Mellon's to thousands of pages of Mellon's letters, diaries and appointment calendars from her family and has interviewed more than 175 people to capture the spirit of this talented American original.
