Anxious about hitting 50, Caroline Kennedy turned to poetry. “Women have always been the weavers of the world,” she writes. “We weave people together, we weave the experiences of life into patterns, and we weave our stories into words. Poetry has been one of the ways we do this.” She Walks In Beauty ($24.99; amazon.com) is her thoughtfully curated collection of verse about the things that matter in a woman’s life: work, sex, solitude, marriage, death and divorce. Dip in and out of this book for inspiration from Sappho, Emily Dickinson, Tillie Olsen and others.
