November marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. This one tragic event spawned what is perhaps the most enduring cluster of conspiracy theories the world has ever known. It also may have spawned the Vietnam War and an opening for a manager at a Dallas night club. But we're going to focus on the conspiracy theory thing.
Join us as we take a look back (and to the left) at magic bullets, grassy knolls, mob hits, and babushka ladies. We're going to relive those days when any assassination theory you could imagine was more likely than the laughable one about a lone nut with a rifle in a warehouse.
Christian Walters is an Atlanta technical writer and instructional designer. He is also a history buff and a huge fan of conspiracy theories.

Dinner and social hour starts at 6pm with the presentation to follow.
We will be in the North Avenue room (from the front door take a right and head all the way back).
