November 22, 1963: Witness to Historyby Hugh Aynesworth
On November 22, 1963, reporter Hugh Aynesworth was not among the cadre of reporters and photographers assigned to cover the Dallas visit of President John Kennedy. Within forty-eight hours, however, Aynesworth had witnessed the assassination of the president, the arrest of the assassin, and the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby. Now fifty years later, November 22, 1963: Witness to History recounts events that have passed into memory and controversy-and sets the record straight.

Meet the Author
Four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, bureau chief of both Newsweek and the Washington Times, and investigative team leader for ABC's 20/20, Hugh Aynesworth was a thirty-two-year-old reporter for the Dallas Morning News when JFK's visit to Dallas ended in tragedy. His coverage of the assassination, the trial of Jack Ruby, and the conspiracy flurry that followed earned him two Pulitzer nominations and recognition as one of the most respected authorities on the Kennedy assassination. His reporting of Martin Luther King's assassination, the 1993 Branch Davidian standoff and fire, and the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City marked his career advancement from a small-town sports editor to bureau chief. Aynesworth is the author or coauthor of seven books, including The Only Living Witness and Conversations with a Killer about serial murderer Ted Bundy. He has served as president of the Dallas Press Club and the Press Club Foundation and has won over seventy local, regional, and national awards. Hugh Aynesworth lives in Dallas with his wife Paula, a sales executive at KERA and KXT North Texas Public Media.

Gave a unique view of this historical day! This man was in the right places to see it unfold. It cleared up a lot of things for me. I remember the day so well and was glad to read this interesting book!
Hugh Aynesworth presents a clear assessment, after years of research, of the tragic events of Nov. 22, 1963, finding absolutely nothing to support any conspiracy of any kind whatsoever. But people love conspiracies, and the myths, fables, half truths and outright lies will go on forever. How sad! Please let JFK rest in peace.
