"Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock" 

In "Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock" (Yale University Press, $26 hardcover), Vanity Fair contributing editor David Margolick offers a comprehensive study of Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Bryan Massery, the two women in Will Counts' iconic photo of the Central High Crisis. The book considers the wide-ranging impact of the 1957 photo (above) and the complex relationship that ensued between the two women, who reconciled in the '60s, struck up a close friendship that endured for many years and then again became estranged.

The book will be released Oct. 4, the same day Margolick is scheduled to speak at 6 p.m. at the Clinton School of Public Service's Sturgis Hall.
