In addition to the regularly scheduled book signing, scheduled for Friday, October 11 from 3:15-3:45 in the meeting exhibit hall, the Oklahoma University Press will be sponsoring a special signing. Stephen Fagin, author of Assassination and Commemoration: JFK, Dallas, and The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, will be signing copies of his book at the Oklahoma University Press booth, Thursday, October 10 from 12:00-1:00.
Assassination and Commemoration: JFK, Dallas, and The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza by Stephan Fagin recounts the slow and painful process by which the city of Dallas, Texas, and a nation came to terms with its collective memory of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and its aftermath. Today, The Sixth Floor Museum helps visitors to interpret the depository and Dealey Plaza as sacred ground and a monument to an unforgettable American tragedy. Fagin’s book both carefully studies a community’s confrontation with tragedy and explores the ways we preserve the past.
