Presenter: Shannon

Assassination Vacation by Sarah VowellA road trip like no other -- a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage. It is the disturbing and fascinating story of how American death has been manipulated by popular culture. Though the themes of loss and violence are explored, there are all kinds of lighter diversions along the way into the lives of the three presidents and their assassins, including mummies, show tunes, mean-spirited totem poles, and a nineteenth-century biblical sex cult.?People vacation to all sorts of places for all sorts of reasons: for relaxation, for experiences or adventures, or learning something new. Sarah Vowell might be the only person who travelled to location to learn about dead presidents. This fascinating account of her encounters with historical assassinations of presidents is sure to be entertaining even if that sounds a little macabre.? -ShannonAvenue Flower Shop & Wine Bar10632 S.
