3 p.m.
Program and Book Signing with the Authors of Dallas 1963

Seventh Floor
Free but ticket is required

A groundbreaking saga of American history — and a gripping narrative of rocketing madness in the American heartland. Dallas 1963 is a literary nonfiction epic that features a doomed president, his cunning vice president, the richest man in the world, the most powerful preacher in America, a defrocked military commander, Martin Luther King, Jr., a Mafia warlord, the most extreme media mogul in the nation – and the most extreme member of Congress. Dallas 1963 is a cinematic retelling of the ultimate perfect storm — a welling gathering of out-sized incendiary, forces.  It is an intimately detailed, riveting portrait of how President John F. Kennedy was barreling straight into a corner of America that had been hijacked by hysteria.
