Right: Clint Hill
A riveting moment in history, revisited 50 years later
A conversation with Clint Hill and Lisa McCubbin: 'Mrs. Kennedy and Me: An Intimate Memoir'
Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 2 p.m., in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on the Minot State University campus, Washburn native Clint Hill will discuss his new book, "Mrs. Kennedy and Me: An Intimate Memoir," in conversation with co-author Lisa McCubbin and give a multimedia presentation, followed by a book signing.
Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy from 1960 to 1964. In those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend.
Now, looking back 50 years, Hill tells his story for the first time, with unforgettable details, startling revelations and sparkling intimate moments of a man doing the most exciting job in the world and recounting the tragedy that ended it all too soon -- a tragedy that haunted him for five decades.
Hill will present rarely seen personal photographs and videos with Mrs. Kennedy and her children along with a United States Secret Service video of what it was actually like to be in the Presidential Motorcade on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.
Hill's presentation is free and open to the public.
