Canton Seniors Book Group meets Thursday, November 20 from 2:00-3:00PM in Canton Public Library's Group Study Room A.  Request a copy of the book from a librarian at the Information Desk.     NOTE: We meet a week earlier this month.

      DALLAS, 1963 by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis.  Here at long last is an accurate understanding of what happened in the weeks and months leading to John F. Kennedy's assassination. DALLAS 1963 is not only a fresh look at a momentous national tragedy but a sobering reminder of how radical, polarizing ideologies can poison a city-and a nation. Winner of the PEN Center USA Literary Award for Research Nonfiction
