As the fiftieth anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination draws near, the events of that fateful day will undoubtedly be on the minds of many throughout the world. Here Dean Owen curates a fascinating collection of interviews and thought-provoking commentaries from notable men and women connected to that notorious Friday afternoon. Those who worked closely with the president, civil rights leaders, celebrities, prominent journalists, and political allies are among the nearly one hundred voices asked to share their reflections on the significance of that day and the legacy left behind by John F. Kennedy. A few of the names include:

* Tom Brokaw, a young reporter in Omaha in 1963
* Andy Rooney, veteran television and radio newscaster
* Letitia Baldrige, former Chief of Staff to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy
* Congressman John Lewis, sole survivor of the "Big Six" black leaders who met the president after the March on Washington in August of 1963
* Cliff Robertson, Academy Award-winning actor who portrayed JFK in PT 109
* Rev. Billy Graham, evangelist

With a compelling foreword from renowned author and journalist Helen Thomas, November 22, 1963 investigates not only where we were that day nearly fifty years ago, but where we have come since. A commemorative and insightful read, this book will unite generations.
