As the season changed from summer to fall, first lady Jill Biden has found a spot to sit outside at the White House to grade her students’ essays.

“On these cool afternoons, I like to go to the Jackie Kennedy garden,” Biden said Thursday night at a gala to honor the 60th anniversary of the White House Historical Association.
Her nod to one of the most iconic first ladies was a fitting tribute to the association’s founder, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, in whose namesake patch of green the current first lady enjoys taking in “the burgundy oaks and maples blazing over the grounds,” she said. The dinner was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, a location that is also an homage to Kennedy, the White House Historical Association President Stewart McLaurin told CNN.
