Join the author for a presentation,
"From Camera Lens to Conspiracies: What Zapruder Saw Then to What the World Sees Now,"
with an interview to follow by Houston Chronicle reporter, Lise Olsen.

On November 22, 1963, Abraham Zapruder left his office hoping for a glimpse of President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade as it passed by Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. The twenty-six seconds of footage depicting the JFK assassination is now iconic, forever embedded in American culture and identity. The first major instance of citizen journalism, this amateur film forced Zapruder to face unprecedented dilemmas. Now his granddaughter Alexandra uses previously sealed archival sources, personal family records, and interviews to explore issues of privacy, ethics, public representation of violence, and the media’s role in disseminating information.
