Five Presidents by Clint Hill & Lisa McCubbin: Tuesday, May 15 | 2:00 pm
Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the courageous Secret Service Agent who leapt onto the back of the presidential limousine in the midst of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, on November 22, 1963. His primary responsibility was the protection of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and for his actions that day, Hill received the nation’s highest civilian award for bravery. Hill looks back 50 years,
telling his story for the first time about his heroic service to five administrations, the PTSD and depression he suffered from being unable to save President Kennedy and how Lisa McCubbin helped him “find a reason to live, not just exist.”
Lisa McCubbin is an award-winning journalist and met Hill while writing the New York Times best seller, The Kennedy Detail: JFK’s Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence. McCubbin convinced Hill that his memories and experiences were of historic value and should be documented. McCubbin and Hill have collaborated closely in the writing of Mrs. Kennedy and Me, Five Days in November and Five Presidents, all of which are New York Times best sellers.
"Meet the Author" Keynote & Book Signing with Richard Paul Evans: Tuesday, July 17 | 2:00 pm
When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 best seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author. The story was written as an expression of love for his then two young daughters. Three years later, this quiet, simple story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. Four of his books were produced into television movies and have starred such well-known actors as Maureen O’Hara, Richard Thomas, Rob Lowe, Christopher Lloyd, James Earl Jones, Naomi Watts and Academy Award winners Vanessa Redgrave and Ellen Burstyn. He has since written more than 30 consecutive New York Times best sellers. There are currently more than 20 million copies of his books in print.
