Sixth Floor Museum presents Stephen Kennedy Smith and Douglas Brinkley
In honor of the centennial of the birth of President John F. Kennedy, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will present a program featuring President Kennedy’s nephew Stephen Kennedy Smith, noted historian Douglas Brinkley, and journalist/author Rena Pederson as moderator.
Kennedy Smith, the eldest son of President Kennedy’s only surviving sibling Jean Kennedy Smith, and Brinkley are making a special trip to Dallas to discuss JFK: A Vision For America, their compilation of John F. Kennedy’s greatest speeches. This comprehensive reflection on President Kennedy’s life and legacy includes the president’s hand-written notes, hundreds of rarely seen photos and commentary by America’s top historians, leading political thinkers and preeminent writers and artists, including the Dalai Lama, Robert Dallek, David McCullough, Senator Jon McCain, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and many others.
Hosted on the Museum’s seventh floor, the two-tiered event begins with a mix-and-mingle reception with Kennedy Smith, Brinkley and Pederson. The program will be followed by a book signing.
