JFK-Media, Myth and Memory Presentation

JFK-Media, Myth and Memory Presentation

John F. Kennedy is one of the most recognized and remembered historical figures thanks to a wealth of photographic images, journalistic accounts, documentaries, books, and film adaptations of his brief White House tenure. His presidency is celebrated as the mythical Camelot come to life. The events surrounding his death can be recalled in vivid detail even by those who were not alive in November 1963. And his assassination has spawned a cottage industry of conspiracy theories. Join Dr. Lisa Burns, Professor of Media Studies at Quinnipiac University, for a discussion of how the media have played a significant role in shaping our individual and collective memories of JFK’s life, death, and legacy.

Please note that this adult program will be showing the footage of the assassination. 


  A special thank you to the Friends of the Library for their funding for this program.
