(CBS/AP) Kitty Kelley, author of gossipy best sellers about Frank Sinatra, Jaqueline Kennedy and others, will be providing "heartwarming" text to accompany a collection of photographs of the Kennedy family.

"Capturing Camelot" will be comprised of photographs by Kelley's 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 Kelley, who manages Tretick's estate, would contribute an "insightful, heartwarming essay" about the photographer and the president.
