This Changes Everything: Ellroy and Mallon on the Assassination of JFK

October 22, 2013

If you’re lucky enough to live in or close to New York City, try and catch this wonderful event at the Paley Center for Media on November 14:

James Ellroy, modern master of historically inflected crime fiction and author of L.A. Confidential and American Tabloid, and Thomas Mallon, novelist and essayist, author of Henry and Clara and Mrs. Paine’s Garage, will explore the continuing fascination the assassination of President John F. Kennedy exerts on popular narrative, the significance of the Kennedy assassination to the American experience, and the ways in which the thematic richness of the event has reverberated through our culture in the subsequent decades.

Full details here.

      No problem. Are you planning to film it and put it on your website? A lot of Ellroy fans here in the UK would be interested to see it.

    We do tape it, but we only put clips up on the Paley Center website ( The full program gets added to our collection, so if any of Ellroy’s UK fans are ever in NY or LA they can come to the Paley Center to watch it.
