NEW YORK (AP) — Kitty Kelley's next book project will be "heartwarming." Promise.

The author of gossipy best sellers about Frank Sinatra, Jacqueline Kennedy and others is providing the text to "Capturing Camelot," a collection of photographs by her friend Stanley Tretick.

Tretick, who died in 1999, covered the White House for Look magazine while John F. Kennedy was in office. He took many pictures of the president and his children that helped define JFK's image as a family man.

Thomas Dunne Books is releasing "Capturing Camelot" in November. The publisher announced Wednesday that Kelly, who manages Tretick's estate, would contribute an "insightful, heartwarming essay" about the photographer and the president.
