November 22

Tomorrow is November 22 again, when we talk about John F. Kennedy's life and terrible death.  For those of us old enough to remember, it was a traumatic day that can never be forgotten, nor can that date pass without immediately thinking of the assassination.

The other day I saw Alexandra Zapruder on TV. Of course, with that name, she is the granddaughter of Abraham Zapruder, who just happened to take the most famous home movie in history. She has written a book called "Twenty-Six Seconds",  about how that film affected her family, and her book is reviewed here by Joyce Carol Oates.
