In December 2013, author Stephen Fagin, joined us for an exciting look into his work Assassination and Commemoration:  JFK, Dallas, and the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. Fagin’s book gave our readers a unique way to look at the assassination of the revered president, the political and social climate of Dallas, Texas in the 1960s, and informed us about the effort to preserve the Texas Book Depository and create a museum commemorating one of the most tragic events in American history.
