While nibbling on ham sandwiches and sipping large cups of coffee, more than 80 people were treated to the story of Jacqueline Kennedy as it came to life courtesy of actress and historian Leslie Goddard.

The Norman C. Huntley Meeting room was packed Tuesday at the St. Charles Public Library for the semiannual Fascinating Women in History Series. One librarian said Goddard was booked well in advance of this year's 50th anniversary of the John F. Kennedy's assassination.
