DALLAS/November 21, 2008—The Sixth Floor Museum invites the public to a free program November 22, 8 p.m., in observance of the 45th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Members of the "Living Memory: Where Were You?" audience will be invited to share their personal memories or hear others speak about where they were when they learned President Kennedy had been shot. The event will be held in the museum's seventh floor gallery.
