As the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination approaches, U.Va.’s Larry Sabato, politics professor and an authority on JFK, will discuss his new findings about Kennedy’s shooting, the impact of his presidency and the echoes from the awful day in Dallas that ended it.
He will be joined by Times-Dispatch politics reporter Markus Schmidt (@MSchmidtRTD) and photographer Dean Hoffmeyer (@DeanHoffmeyer), who traveled to Dallas to report on the anniversary for a special section that will appear in the Times-Dispatch on Nov. 17.
Please join us for our 49th Public Square for a conversation about one of our nation’s great tragedies and its lasting impact on the fabric of American culture. Afterwards, Sabato will sign copies of his book, “The Kennedy Half Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy of John F. Kennedy.”
