Free Virtual Event


The Sixth Floor Museum and the UNT Dallas College of Law present: Kennedy’s Avenger: Assassination, Conspiracy, and the Forgotten Trial of Jack Ruby with authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher in conversation with Felecia Epps, Dean and Professor of Law, UNT Dallas College of Law.


New York Times best-selling authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher join Dean Felecia Epps for an in-depth discussion of one of the most publicized—and most surprising—criminal trials in history. This new publication explores the trial of Jack Ruby who shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald just days after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The book recounts the story of the trial and features twists and turns too numerous to count; Ruby died an innocent man, despite having pulled the trigger on national television.





Dan Abrams is the chief legal affairs correspondent for ABC News and host of The Dan Abrams Show: Where Politics Meets the Law on SiriusXM. He also hosts and produces numerous shows for A&E Network. A graduate of Columbia University Law School, he is CEO and founder of Abrams Media, which includes the Law & Crime network. He lives in New York.




David Fisher is the author of twenty-five New York Times bestsellers. He lives in New York with his wife, Laura.


Together, Abrams and Fisher are the authors of the New York Times bestsellers John Adams Under Fire, Theodore Roosevelt for the Defense and Lincoln’s Last Trial, which received the 2018 Barondess/Lincoln Award. Their latest collaboration is Kennedy’s Avenger.
