Audible Editor Reviews

Journalist Dean Owen curates an important collection of interviews and commentaries from the individuals connected to the events of November 22, 1963, the day of President Kennedy's assassination. Arthur Morey, AudioFile Magazine’s 2012 Golden Voice and recipient of multiple Earphones Awards, leads a superb cast of narrators whose performances capture the spirit and personalities of nearly one hundred men and women, ranging from civil rights leaders to eminent reporters, without resorting to caricature. These moving narrations provide a thoughtful, emotionally-resonant picture of that tragic day and its impact on all Americans.
