If you subscribe to A List, the Advocate ‘s e-newsletter (if you don’t , we will tell you how to do so once we work out a few kinks with the awesome new website) you read that the Sixth Floor Museum in Dealey Plaza is commemorating the 45th anniversary of the JFK assassination with some special lectures and exhibits.
A couple tweaks to that mention in the newsletter: One, I inadvertently wrote that this Sunday is the anniversary. Obviously, Sunday is Nov. 23, not the anniversary, which is Nov. 22. I think I meant to write "this weekend". Sorry for any confusion that caused — I know at least one perceptive reader pointed it out to us. Also, and more importantly, Dan Rather’s keynote address has been canceled. Here’s what’s happening instead:
The museum will still observe the 45th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s death and invites you to come to the museum Saturday at 8 p.m. for a special one-hour program entitled, “Living Memory: Where Were You?”
The event will give audience members the opportunity to share their personal stories about Nov. 22, 1963, and it will also give younger members of the audience a unique venue for hearing first-hand accounts about that historic event. Admission is free. If you would like to reserve seats, please reply here by 5 p.m. Friday (TODAY), or call 214-747-6660, ext. 6625. The museum appreciates your support and understanding.
