Twenty-Six Seconds: An Evening with Alexandra Zapruder
November 22, 2016 | 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.| $15 - $44
Abraham Zapruder’s home movie capturing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as his motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza includes perhaps the most iconic 26 seconds of film in history—the first major instance of citizen journalism. On the anniversary of President Kennedy’s death, Abraham Zapruder’s granddaughter, Alexandra Zapruder, discussed her new book, Twenty-Six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film. Part biography, part family history and part historical narrative, Zapruder showed how 26 seconds of film changed a family and raised some of the most important social, cultural and moral questions of our time.
