Palm Beach People written by Hilary Geary Ross with photos by Harry Benson is a dazzling portrait and insider’s view of a fabled and exclusive resort community and its high-profile denizens. It captures the essence of America’s most exclusive enclave, from the early 70s to today, in hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs complimented by revealing captions. Subjects include the Duke and Duchess of Marborough; former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and his wife Mila; Marie Jose Kravis; members of the Fanjul family; Judy and Alfred Taubman; Georgina Bloomberg; Pauline Pitt; Mrs. Henry Ford; Leonard Lauder; Tommy Lee Jones; David Koch; Arriana and Dixon Boardman; Tatiana Smith; Mrs. Winston Churchill; Brooke Shields; Anne Slater; and many, many more.
In Palm Beach People, Benson and Ross give the reader a grand tour of America’s most glamorous watering hole. You’ll meet everyone from captains of industry, politicians, movie stars, artists, and best-selling authors to celebrated athletes and society doyenne, all captured in their exquisite private oases, often architectural masterpieces, or in other of their favorite Palm Beach settings.
