Carnegie Mellon CyLab To Host Authors of a New Revealing Book about Kennedy Assassination

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon CyLab will commemorate the 41st anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's death with a minute-by-minute story of the events leading to his assassination from 11 a.m. to noon Monday, November 22, in the Singleton Room of Roberts Hall.

Award-winning journalists Cathy Trost and Susan Bennett will discuss and share the actual broadcasts and remarkable eyewitness accounts of one of the nation's most debated events of history. The book was produced with the assistance of the Newseum, the world's first interactive museum of news.

Trost, a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal and United Press International (UPI), is co-author of the critically acclaimed "Running Toward Danger: Stories Behind the Breaking News of 9/11." Bennett, director of International Exhibits at the Newseum, is a veteran editor and reporter who covered foreign affairs, national policies and Congress. She was previously national correspondent for Knight-Ridder newspapers and an editor and writer on USA Today's editorial pages.

The program is part of a Carnegie Mellon CyLab Media Speaker Series designed to showcase newly penned books by media willing to share their experiences covering everything from identity theft and cybersecurity to presidential assassinations.

Carnegie Mellon CyLab is a university-wide, multidisciplinary initiative that builds on more than two decades of Carnegie Mellon's leadership in information technology and involves more than 200 faculty, staff and students from six different departments and three colleges within the university.

WHEN: 11 a.m. to noon Monday, Nov. 22

WHERE: Singleton Room, Roberts Hall, Carnegie Mellon University
