Action, heartache and humor. War, selfless heroism, untold secrets and conniving politicians… how could you not love reading and learning about history?
The Scrapbook Lecture …a collection of suspects, is a fact-based historical fiction novel that reads more like an adventure story than a history book. Still, a great deal of effort and research went into making sure that all the actual events portrayed in the past are as accurate as possible. While you read, allow yourself the simple luxury of floating through time with a gifted raconteur as he depicts the highlights of a half century of seemingly unrelated events, actions and politics. Some of these events and actions ultimately converge within a few short moments and quite likely change the very course of humanity.
In the year 2038, an old professor at a Dallas university will be giving lectures that many of his students love. His uncanny ability to chauffeur their imaginations throughout history with creative storytelling will make his class one of their favorites. The Scrapbook Lecture is one such class that describes the crucial actions and reactions of a long list of people who should have been, or should be, suspects in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The old professor's only prop is a 124-year-old scrapbook that a mysterious, lonely woman in the heart of Boston had devotedly composed over the same half century, and eventually passed on to her grandniece.
