LIFE will publish a book called The Day Kennedy Died to honor the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s death.
The book, which comes out on October 15th, opens up with a foreword featuring a conversation with historian David McCullough. It also contains photos, several essays, and “all 486 frames of the [Abraham] Zapruder film in print for the first time.”
The assassination of our 35th president took place in Dallas, TX on November 22, 1963. President Jimmy Carter, Dr. May Angelou, actor Alec Baldwin and other celebrities contributed personal stories about “where they were when they heard the news.”
