Award-Winning Author Bill Minutaglio Discusses His New Book, "Dallas 1963"
Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Join us for a special event as Bill Minutaglio discusses his just-released book Dallas 1963 : Patriots, Traitors, and the Assassination of JFK in time to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Bill and his co-author, Steven L. Davis, have written a chilling account of the city that would become infamous for the assassination of a president. "Dallas 1963" is a clear-eyed work of history that avoids speculation and theory, instead focusing on the group of radicals, reactionaries, and extremists that coalesced in Dallas leading up to–and during–the Kennedy presidency. The book presents a clear and revelatory look at the tragedy that transformed America.
Bill has written commemorative essays for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the assassination of President Kennedy. He has been interviewed by Brian Williams, Katie Couric, Charlie Rose, and Terry Gross, and has been featured on The Today Show, Nightline, NPR, BBC and in several documentaries. He is a Clinical Professor of Journalism, and Fellow to the Collier Chair, at the University of Texas at Austin. (Photo by Dennis Darling)
