First-person reflections on the day a hopeful nation was ripped apart in grief

WhereWereYou-JFK-1Where Were You?

By Gus Russo & Harry Moses

Hardcover, 408 pages ($29.95, Lyons Press/Globe Pequot)

A companion book to the NBC special airing Nov. 22 on the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, this handsome compilation of first-person stories features contributions from Jimmy Carter, Robert De Niro, John Glenn, Tom Hanks, Jay Leno, Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, Judy Collins and more than 30 other heads of state, journalists, public figures, performers and ordinary citizens swept up in the extraordinary circumstances of that fateful day. Through reflections on the many ways Kennedy’s death represented a hopeful nation suddenly ripped apart in grief and loss, it’s a portrait of a people forever changed, as remembered by a diverse group united by the experience of having lived through it.
