BOOKS: Grace Coddington at Barnes and Noble
Vogue creative director Grace Coddington won over viewers of the 2009 documentary The September Issue by playing good cop to Anna Wintour's bad. Her new memoir Grace follows her path from working as a model in swinging '60s London to the other side of the camera, with a chapter devoted to her cats. Tonight she appears with Vogue editor-at-large Hamish Bowles.
