JFK 50 Years Later

JFK 50 Years Later

The 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination is today and we've got plenty of books about the beloved president and the 60s:

NOVEMBER 22, 1963 edited by Laura Hansen, compiled by Jodie Elliott Hansen
This extensive collection of intimate accounts from average citizens and celebrities about where they were when they heard that the President had been shot is a stunning and poignant time capsule.

THE KENNEDY HALF-CENTURY by Larry J. Sabato
Acclaimed political analyst Sabato examines John F. Kennedy's lasting influence on the media, the general public, and on each of his nine presidential successors.

THE LETTERS OF JOHN F. KENNEDY by Martin W. Sandler
The first ever collection of correspondence with John F. Kennedy, including letters to and from the likes of Martin Luther King Jr., John Wayne, Albert Schweitzer, Eleanor Roosevelt, Nikita Khrushchev, Harry Truman, as well as letters from ordinary citizens, schoolchildren, and concerned Americans.

DEAR MRS. KENNEDY by Jay Mulvaney and Paul De Angelis
A collection of condolence letters to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy from political luminaries (Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr.), Hollywood stars (Vivian Leigh, Gene Kelly), foreign dignitaries (Queen Elizabeth II, Prince of Monaco), and celebrities (Ezra Pound, Langston Hughes).

KILLING KENNEDY by Bill O'Reilly
The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

A CRUEL AND SHOCKING ACT by Philip Shenon
Based on hundreds of interviews and unprecedented access to the surviving Warren Commission staffers and other key players, Shenon's book is a groundbreaking account that will change the way we think about the controversial murder investigation.

CAPTURING CAMELOT by Kitty Kelley
Accompanied by an insightful, heartwarming essay from Kitty Kelley photojournalist Stanley Tretick's close friend about the relationship between Tretick and JFK, this stunning photo book includes some of the most memorable images of America's Camelot and brings to life the uniquely hopeful historical era from which it emerged.

Next week we're taking an extended turkey break (we hope you are, too!), but Anne might chime in with some recipes she's whipping up at home. 

PS: If you're at NCTE, stop by booth #811-813 and say hello to Anne.
