| Historic LoDo: For four years, from the election of John F. Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend. You may remember Hill. He's the one who
leapt onto the back of the presidential limousine that day in Dallas
when President Kennedy was shot, holding on while the car raced to
Parkland Memorial Hospital, an act of heroism that was captured in the
famous Zapruder film. Hill is the last surviving passenger of that
limousine. He and coauthor Lisa McCubbin will present a slideshow and sign their new book Mrs. Kennedy & Me: An Intimate Memoir (Gallery Books). Filled with unforgettable details, startling revelations, and sparkling, intimate moments, this is the once-in-a-lifetime story of a man doing the most exciting job in the world, with a woman all the world loved, and the tragedy that ended it all too soon—a tragedy that haunted him for fifty years. |
