Assassination and Commemoration: A Conversation with Stephen Fagin, Conover Hunt and Lindalyn Adams

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 | 2 PM

Commemorate what would have been President John F. Kennedy’s 96th birthday on Wednesday, May 29, by joining us for during a special program featuring a conversation between Stephen Fagin, Associate Curator at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, and the Museum’s two key founders, historian Conover Hunt and preservation activist Lindalyn Adams.  

Speaking publicly at the Museum for the first time, Adams and Hunt will discuss the decade they spent making The Sixth Floor exhibition a reality while helping a community confront its darkest tragedy. A book signing will follow.

The program starts at 2 p.m. and is free but tickets are required. Seating is limited and advanced tickets are recommended. Reserve advance tickets here:

The program marks the publication of Fagin’s new book, "Assassination and Commemoration: JFK, Dallas, and The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza," a new publication from the University of Oklahoma Press that highlights the decades-long work that went into the creation of The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. It places the history and development of the Museum within the context of the social and political history of Dallas in the aftermath of the assassination and acknowledges the effort of a group of individuals who were determined to create a museum that both commemorates a president and recalls the drama and heartbreak of November 22, 1963.

"Assassination and Commemoration" is currently available for purchase exclusively at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza until its nationwide release in July 2013.
