WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Best-selling auther Philip Shenon will speak at Sarah Lawrence College on Tuesday, Sept. 30, and offer his insight into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Shenon is the author of “A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination." In his visit to Sarah Lawrence, he will talk about his research and his unprecedented access to surviving Warren Commission staff members and other key players that contributed to his quest to uncover the mysteries of one of this country’s darkest days.
The lecture, to be held in the Donnelley Lecture Hall in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center, is free and open to the public. Shuttle service will be available from the college’s parking lots. In May, Shenon received the 57th annual Francis Parkman Prize, awarded by the Society of American Historians, based at Columbia University, for his book. Named for a 19th-century historian widely honored for his elegant prose style, The Parkman Prize is awarded annually for a nonfiction book that is distinguished by its literary merit and makes an important contribution to the history of what is now the United States. Shenon also authored "The Commission: The uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation." He was a reporter for The New York Times for more than 20 years, where, as Washington correspondent, he covered the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the State Department. He lives and writes in Washington, D.C.
