Book Review: Ann Nyberg's Remembering Katharine Hepburn: Stories of Wit and Wisdom of America’s Leading Lady

Ann Nyberg's Remembering Katharine Hepburn: Stories of Wit and Wisdom of America’s Leading Lady is a unique and captivating look at a woman who has been an inspiration to many and whose legacy continues on to this day. A local Connecticut journalist, Nyberg did what any good journalist would do by going straight to the source to deliver stories from those who knew her best-her family, friends, neighbors, and many others who knew her during her lifetime. Many of the stories bring out the true Hepburn in Katharine Hepburn. There have been numerous books about Katharine Hepburn written over the years, both prior to her death in 2003 and afterwards, Nyberg’s book is one of-if not THE-best there is. This book portrays Hepburn for who she was-not how people perceived who she was based on what was seen in the media, from an outsider’s point of view or from a “so-called insider” who’s really looking in from an outsider’s point of view. This book offers a unique look at Hepburn's life and legacy through the eyes of those who knew her as simply "Kate". If you are a fan, even in the slightest of classic films or Katharine Hepburn, definitely get this book.
