LAS VEGAS – The Mob Museum
, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, will host “JFK: An Inside Look into the Assassination of a President 50 Years Later” in its historic courtroom.
The program begins at 7 p.m. today.
Part of the Museum’s ongoing programming series, the evening will provide a look back at this historic event through the differing perspectives of three panelists.
Authors Patrick Nolan (“CIA Rogues and the Killing of the Kennedys,” set for release this week), Gerald Posner (“Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK”) and G. Robert Blakey (“The Plot to Kill the President” and “Fatal Hour: The Assassination of President Kennedy by Organized Crime”) will address questions such as: “Was Lee Harvey Oswald a lone shooter?” “What role, if any, did organized crime play in the assassination?” “Was government involved?”
Moderating the panel will be Tom Stone, senior lecturer in English at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, who has taught classes for the past 20 years on JFK’s assassination.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with a reception featuring light fare and a cash bar. The program will begin promptly at 7 p.m. in The Mob Museum’s historic courtroom.
After the moderator-led panel discussion, audience members will have a chance to ask questions and have their books signed by the authors. The evening will mark the first public signing of Nolan’s book. The program will conclude by 9 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $30 for non-members; Museum members will receive a 10 percent discount.
