Alexandra Zapruder, Twenty-Six Seconds
Author presentation and refreshments
Abraham Zapruder didn’t know, when he began filming President Kennedy’s motorcade on November 22, 1963, that twenty-six seconds of his home movie would change not only his family’s life but also American culture and history. Now his granddaughter tells the “fascinating and cautionary tale” (The Wall Street Journal) of the Zapruder film and raises some of the most important social, cultural, and moral questions of our time. Using personal family records, archival sources and interviews she traces the film’s complex journey through history, considering its impact on her family and the public realms of the media, courts, Federal government, and the arts community.
